I have recently installed XAMPP on a server with SSL configured.
I used the makecert command to create a certificate with the IP address of the server as the certificate name.
So the certificate is issued to and issued by 192.168....X.Y
The website loads find on the web server but when I try and access is from a client machine I get a certificate error because the CA root certificate is not trusted. One option is to manually install the certificate into each client machines "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" store but this would be very difficult to manage and time consuming.
We have a CA Server in our domain. Is there an easy way to either distribute the Apache certificate across the domain or request a certificate from our Windows 2012 domain CA and install it into Apache?
Certificates issues by our domain CA Server seem to automatically be distributed across the domain - I confess I'm not sure how this happens?
Please can you advise on the best course of action?
