@snaphoteldeal: Yes, you can install a Comodo SSL cert as long as you do what I said (follow the first article, stop at step 3, follow steps 2 & 3 of the second article, and proceed with the first article).

@ Kamal Nasser Thanks for the articles, but one question these articles show how to install self signed certificates, but can I install ssl validated by Comodo using the same procedure?

@Kamal Nasser I will be using Apache.

What webserver are you using? Apache?

@Pablo I want to use it as a web server.

It depends on what you want to use it for? A mail server? A web server?
