Installing a GoDaddy certificate to Apache

  • Posted on January 13, 2014

I am getting a browser error when I access uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed. (Error code: sec_error_untrusted_issuer)

I have two files from GoDaddy: /etc/httpd/conf/keys/ /etc/httpd/conf/keys/

Which is the SSLCACertificateFile and which is the SSLCertificateChainFile?

Should these directives be in /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf or /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf?

<code>SSLCACertificateFile</code> should be set to <code>/etc/httpd/conf/keys/ </code> and <code>SSLCertificateChainFile</code> should be set to <code>/etc/httpd/conf/keys/</code>. <br> <br><blockquote>Should these directives be in /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf or /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf?</blockquote>They should be inside your <VirtualHost> tags. <br> <br>Make sure you reload/restart Apache once you edit the config files.
