Failed to Configure CA Certificate chain

Posted April 20, 2014 8.8k views
I got my free ssl at and it works really fine. My site is working with https://. After I configure LAMP and VSFTP and broke something in there, I decided to re-install UBUNTU 12.04 OS to wipe out all the configurations and unnecessary thing i made in there. Following the same procedure as I was configuring it before and added the same SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/ssl.crt SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache2/ssl/private.key SSLCertificateChainFile /etc/apache2/ssl/ When I restart the apache2 it showed FAILED instead of OK. I immediately run this command cat /var/log/apache2/error.log and found out the error Failed to configure CA certificate chain!. I followed this post but still no luck. BTW, I configured my VPS like this tutorial and it works so fine before i re-install my OS.

Does /etc/apache2/ssl/ exist? Try overwriting it with the latest copy from StartSSL:
wget -O /etc/apache2/ssl/
