Default Chained / intermediate SSL certificates


ispconfig is great, well done to all those involved. Though i did have a bit of trouble with the "perfect" install, mainly due to the fact i have a x86_64 processor, all the answers i need were in this forum, i ended up using sendmail and vsftp with no difficulties.

I am trying to install a CA signed ssl certificate. However as part of the process i need to install an intermediate certificate.
Instructions are as follows:


Installing Your Web Server Certificate and the Intermediate Certificate:
- Copy your issued certificate, intermediate certificate and key file (generated when you created the Certificate Signing Request (CSR)) into the directory that you will be using to hold your certificates.
- Open the Apache ssl.conf file and add the following directives:

SSLCertificateFile /path to certificate file/your issued certificate
SSLCertificateKeyFile /path to key file/your key file
SSLCertificateChainFile /path to intermediate certificate/sf_issuing.crt

- Save your ssl.conf file and restart Apache.


Now, ISPconfig seems to store ssl info in /etc/httpd/conf/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf
so the changes i make in /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf do not seem to do anything.

If i copy the certificate issued by godaddy using the ispconfig web interface it stops the server and apache refuses to start until i re-create the self-signed certificate using a ispconfig.

I am not sure what files i need to update. If someone knows what i need to do, or even where i should start looking, your help would be appreciated.
