You should be able to create the bundle with:


cat MyDomain_com COMODORSADomainValidationSecureServerCA.crt \
COMODORSAAddTrustCA.crt AddTrustExternalCARoot.crt > COMODO.ca-bundle
That tutorial is for creating a self-signed key. You want to use the one that you received from PositiveSSL. The steps will be largely the same, but you can start with step four:

When editing /etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl point to where you have stored the files you downloaded from Godaddy instead of the ones you would have created:

```
SSLEngine On
SSLCertificateFile /path/to/.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /path/to/.key
SSLCertificateChainFile /path/to/.ca-bundle
```

This tutorial explains how to create a self-signed SSL certificate, how to add it to your server, and how to configure the SSL file to display the certificate to the world. A SSL certificate is a way to encrypt a site's information and create a more secure connection. Certificate Authorities can issue SSL certificates that verify the server's details while a self-signed certificate has no 3rd party corroboration. This tutorial is written for Apache on an Ubuntu server.
