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.
