Please do the steps exactly in the order as described there. You created a new certificate request and certificate already, that is fine. Now take this certificate request and login at godaddy and let it sign, then copy this new ssl certificate that must be based on the csr created by ispconfig back to your ispconfig server.

The mistake you made the first time was that the ssl certificate you used from godaddy was not based on the csr created by ispconfig.

But I have followed these steps exactly about 10 times. The certificate from godaddy is on my server in the web1/ssl directory. But when I go to https://mydomain.com, I the certificate that is being pulled is a self signed cert. I can't even find the self-signed cert on my server, but the godaddy one is right in my SSL.

Does it have anything to do with the fact that the IP is shared? There is no where is ISPconfig to set a private IP address.

Ok, it worked this time. I had to restart ISPconfig in order for it to be recognized. The instructions didn't say anything about restarting ISPconfig, so someone may think about adding that.

Thanks...

There are a lot of posts about this but none from the beginning, so I'm still really confused.

I bought an SSL certificate from godaddy. I enabled SSL on the website I want to be secure, gave godaddy the top portion of text, and they gave me two files:

1) gd_bundle.crt
2) www.mydomain.com.crt

...with the following instructions for installing the certificate:

Code:
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/null
Save your ssl.conf file and restart Apache.
I basically ignored these instructions and uploaded the two files they gave me to the site's SSL directory.

I then added the following to the directives space on the website:

Code:
SSLCertificateChainFile/var/www/web#/ssl/gd_intermediate_bundle.crt
Am I missing something? It still fails when I try and restart apache.

Can it use the same IP address as everything else on the server?

PLEASE help. This is driving me nuts.
