Deploy SSL Certificate from Accounts > Certificate to OpenSSL?

Posted March 31, 2020 285 views

We have an existing SSL certificate that we installed using command line a few years ago. We renewed our certificate and saw that DO had the Accounts > Certificate area where you can deploy certificates.

Our domain is hosted with Google Domains so the EssentialSSL Wizard piece is out, and we used a 3rd Party (DO says ‘custom’) SSL certificate. Now that its in the Accounts > Certificate area, how do I actually assign it to my domain? I imagine its back in CLI but I’m not really sure how to point that GUI to command line and vice versa.

  • Edit: That was a mistake to say ‘hosted with Google Domains’, I meant to put the DNS is handled by Google Domains. We’re hosted on a DO CentOS 16.xx Droplet.
