Question Configuring SSL certificate to website ISPConfig 3

Hello all!

I read ISPConfig 3 manual (5.4 How Do I Create An SSL Web Site?) and it works just for a Self-signed certificate and presents into my webclient browser that certificate was issued by "localhost.localdomain".

I follwed instructions to save a trusted certificate, but it does not work for me.

Can you help me to use this trusted certificate? Is there any other conf that I need to do into Apache or ISPConfig to solve this issue?

Regards.

Hello,

Simply generate the key (SSL request) to submit to a trusted authority (Verisign or others). Copy the certificate issued by the trusted authority in the SSL certificate.
There.
Sincerely,

Please post the exact error message that you got. Depending on the ssl authority that you used to sign the cert, it might be nescessary to add a chain certificate in the additional certs field. You should have received informations about that from the company where you bought the ssl certificate.

Question

makensy13:
I did it (copied SSL request generated by ISPConfig and generated SSL certificate in http://www.cacert.org/) after that I pasted SSL certificate genereted by CACert into SSL certificate field in ISPConfig.

till:
I copied and pasted "Root Certificate (PEM Format)" and "Intermediate Certificate (PEM Format)" from http://www.cacert.org/index.php?id=3 into SSL bundle field and saved it.
Is it correct?

Into ISPConfig I not see any error, just when a user access the SSL site/url and certificate error (CA Root untrusted etc) is presented by web browser.
I know that it is ocurring because the root/certificate is showed as "localhost.localdomain" but I can't solve/configure it to use root certificate from CACert instead.

Is there any tip to troubleshoot my configuration to be sure I am configuring in the right way?

Regards,

Rogerio Siviero Jr.

Any errors in Apache's error logs (the normal one and the SSL error log)?
