For what service? Each service has a slightly different way to configure SSL. From a generic point put your public certificate in /etc/ssl/certs and your private key in /etc/ssl/private, ensure both are owned by root, the public one is 644 and the private one is 640.

I have a similar question on SSL. I have an e-commerce site and I was suggested to ‘upgrade’ to SSL secured site from trusted third party. I believe https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-create-a-ssl-certificate-on-apache-for-ubuntu-14-04 tutorial is meant for self-signed one, not intended for e-commerce site.

Could anyone please help suggest on to get started on this matter? Does it require big coding/change on my WordPress + WooCommerce site? Or is it just simply create a few files here and there. and done?

Thank you
