    Secure Certificate Renewal

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: MetaLib
    • Product Version: 3

    Description:
    I've just renewed my httpd/ssl/wotsit certificate with GlobalSign and put it in the right place (SSLconf/conf) as specified by the configuration under #..# SSL stuff #..# in httpsd.conf (and indeed made a change in httpd.conf to bar access to /tmp in htdocs re recent list discussion).

    To apply the certificate, is it sufficient just to restart apache (cd $httpd_root/bin -> su -> <pswd> -> ./apachectl restart -> exit) or do I have to restart SSL as well?

    Resolution:
    As long as the certificate name is the same as the old one, no configurations need to be changed. If the name is different, one needs to update the files $httpd_root/conf/ssl.conf and $httpd_root/conf/ssl.conf.tml to point to the current certificates.

    Afterwards, restart apache with a root user using apachectl_auto.
