You should be able to create the bundle with: <br> <br><pre> <br>cat MyDomain_com COMODORSADomainValidationSecureServerCA.crt
<br> COMODORSAAddTrustCA.crt AddTrustExternalCARoot.crt > COMODO.ca-bundle <br></pre>

Really having a hard time with this… :{ <br> <br> <br>Here are the file I have gotten from Comodo <br> <br>AddTrustExternalCARoot <br>COMODORSAAddTrustCA <br>COMODORSADomainValidationSecureServerCA <br>MyDomain_com <br> <br>how do I make a .ca-bundle in details please and next step after that <br> <br> <br>Thank you.

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: <br> <br>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-create-a-ssl-certificate-on-apache-for-ubuntu-12-04#StepFour—SetUptheCertificate <br> <br>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: <br> <br> <br>SSLEngine On <br>SSLCertificateFile /path/to/.crt <br>SSLCertificateKeyFile /path/to/.key <br>SSLCertificateChainFile /path/to/.ca-bundle <br>
