Question

SSL from GoDaddy on Ubuntu 12.10/Apache

Posted July 17, 2013 11k views
I searched through the support docs and the forum threads, but didn't find anything specific to this. The support docs I looked at referred to creating and install a self-generated SSL cert. The forum threads referred to nginx. not Apache. I found this https://wiki.apache.org/httpd/NameBasedSSLVHosts but it is a bit confusing. Does such a doc exist for DO on Apache that walks through how to install a third party cert? Thanks! PS - adding tags to this post, there is no tag for SSL. Curious.......

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.
Deekin, take a look at the article Justin linked. You'll need Godaddy's intermediate certificate, http://support.godaddy.com/help/article/5349/installing-ssl-certificate-apache-2x

I’m guessing you’ve got way past this but when I searched initially I got here but this page seems to help and is new (in 2014): https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/openssl-essentials-working-with-ssl-certificates-private-keys-and-csrs
