    SSL cert for web site


    I have a *.crt, *.pfx and *.p7b SSl cert that I got off my Windows 2008 server and want to use it on my Cent OS 5.7 server but not sure how about importing the key or if it can be done. I have found many other references to how to create my own self signed Cert but none that explains how or if you can import one. Any direction would be appreciated!!

    Thank you

    What are you intended to do? Have you bought the cert? Would you use it with Apache, Login, Ldap...?

    Use the following apache directive in your apache.conf:

    SSLEngine on
    SSLCertificateFile /usr/local/apache/etc/ssl.crt/server.crt
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /usr/local/apache/etc/ssl.key/server.pem

    You may need to convert some of your files. Have a look at for explanation:
