Apache SSL Installation Instructions

  1. Upload the SSL file in Apache folder which you downloaded from your account to /etc/ssl/.
  2. Open the Apache configuration file in a text editor. Apache configuration files are usually found in /etc/httpd. The main configuration file is usually named httpd.conf. In most cases the <VirtualHost> blocks will be at the bottom of this httpd.conf file. Sometimes you will find the <VirtualHost> blocks in a separate file in a directory like /etc/httpd/vhosts.d/ or /etc/httpd/sites/ or in a file called ssl.conf.
  3. If you need your site to be accessible through both secure (https) and non-secure (http) connections, you will need a virtual host for each type of connection. Make a copy of the existing non-secure virtual host and change the port from port 80 to 443.
  4. Edit your configuration file accordingly, make sure the IP is your own server's IP and the domain names are your own domain names.
    <VirtualHost 192.168.0.1:443>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/website
    ServerName domainname www.domain.com
    SSLEngine on
    SSLCertificateFile /etc/ssl/domain.crt
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/ssl/domain.key
    SSLCertificateChainFile /etc/ssl/CAChains
    .crt
    </VirtualHost> 
  5. You can change the names of the files and paths to match your needs.
  6. Save the changes and exit the text editor.
  7. Restart your Apache web server.
