From where did you obtain the SSL certificates?  Typically, each provider will have a help page that lists the steps necessary to install the certificate in IIS, and Apache, at the least.

Extract all of the contents of the ZIP file that was sent to you and copy/move them to your server. The extracted contents will typically be named: yourDomainName.crt and yourDomainName.ca-bundle

Move all of the certificate related files to their appropriate directories.

A typical setup:

Move the Private Key that was generated earlier to the ssl.key directory, which is typically found in /etc/ssl/. This must be a directory which only Apache can access.

what they mean PRIVATE KEY ?

Commented:
The private key is the key you generated when generating your CSR.

can i generade CRS again ,how?
Jim RiddlesPrepress/OMS Specialist

Commented:
No, the CSR is what was generated to begin the process of obtaining your SSL certificate.  If you can't locate it, you may be able to contact Comodo support to see if they can help you with it.

Thanks Jim

I have one more question. I have one more linux debian server (for ftp). I also use there my wildcard cert. can i use its Private key in the other apache server? Private keys are the same on all servers isn it?

Commented:
Private keys are not native to servers, per se.  You can use the same private key on multiple servers, and you can use multiple private keys on the same server.  They are just what is needed to encrypt the data, so the corresponding public key can decrypt it.
