Hi, I install a SSL, but in a SSL checker it says I need a Intermediate/chain to be compatible with all browsers. any help how I do that?

I allready have my server.crt, server.csr and server.key in nginx / ssl directory.

You can download the intermediate certificate from your SSL issuer’s website and then add it to your certificate:

cat server.crt intermediate.crt > combined.crt

Then update your virtualhost/server block to point to the new certificate file (combined.crt).
