I have a digital certification for my server and web site. I am moving everything over to a new server. These are both run on apache and i have root access to both. Can i simly copy the .cert file over to the new server, or am i going to have to get it reissued.

Either way what are the steps I'm going to have to take. Please explain everything as this is really the first time i'm configuring apache from the start.

Also there will be other virtual servers on this apache.. but right now i'm just wondering how i get the cert moved over and create a virtual server on port 443 the uses this certification.

Micamedia,

Yes you can simply copy the cert between servers. Make sure to transfer the certs in ascii between the webservers. You will need to also move your key from your web server as well. Also depending on if your key is encrypted or not you may need to copy your PhasePhrase to the new web server as well. Look for the PhasePhrase directive in your apache conf if it is not there chances are your key is not encrypted.

Good Luck,

Liam
