Configure SSL with Apache 2.0.61 on Windows Server 2003
Posted on 2008-10-26
I provide application hosting and I have been asked to set up SSL on one of the servers I manage. The server is already running Apache/2.0.61 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.0.61 OpenSSL/0.9.7m mod_jk/1.2.0. (Apache was installed with the following binary: apache_2.0.61-win32-x86-openssl-0.9.7m.msi).
I have found a bunch of links to HOW TOs, but they all seem to deal with generating a self-signed certificate. In this case my customer has provided me with a certificate signed by VeriSign. But I am not sure what to do with it.
This is urgent - I need to get SSL configured in the next few hours.
What do I do with the certificate file (compasstest.cer)?
