We have a droplet running Apache/CentOS 7.3.1611 and we need to install an SSL from Comodo. Does anyone have any resources that can guide us on how to do this?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi @mreisbeck

There’s a tutorial for implementing a self-signed certificate, but if you just ignore step 2, then it should be a pretty straight forward guide (otherwise chime back and we’ll try to assist you):

SSL is a web protocol used to encrypt a site's information and create a more secure connection. The certificate system also assists users in verifying the identity of the sites that they are connecting with. In this guide, we will show you how to set up a self-signed SSL certificate for use with an Apache web server on a CentOS 7 VPS.

Thanks @hansen this is what I needed.
