Good Day Experts!!

I need to convert (copy) a GoDaddy IIS SSL certificate to an Apache server and I have no clue what I am doing. It is a .crt file.

How can this be done?

Thanks!!!!

After completing a CSR and receiving a certificate from the vendor, import the certificate into IIS.  Using the MMC "Certificates" plug-in, export the cert with the private key into a PFX file.  A password will be required for the export.  Using openssl, decrypt the PFX file:

openssl pkcs12 -in exported.file.pfx -out unencrypted.key.and.cert.txt -nodes

The resulting file will have a section each for the private key, and the original certificate.  Simply cut-and-paste into two separate files and follow the instructions for installing into Apache.
