Configuring Apache on CentOS 5.5 with SSL Certificate from Third Party Certificate Authority

 Several months ago I documented Installing an SSL Certificate in IIS 7.5 from a Public Certificate Authority signed by the third party CA StartCom.  For those unfamiliar with StartCom they have the added benefit of offering free personal class 1 SSL certificates.  Recently I was tasked with migrating this certificate from my Windows 2008 R2 IIS 7.5 server to an Apache 2.2/CentOS Linux  5.5 box.  This process assumes that you have performed the procedure above I’ve linked to and installed the public CA signed certificate on an IIS 7.5 server.  scfb.info

Now go back out to the StartCom login page:  https://www.startssl.com/?app=12.  If you are still logged on to the StartCom website and in the ToolBox section from the previous Windows 2008 R2 IIS 7.5 certificate install documentation skip down to the 4th screenshot.

Click Authenticate.

Click the green button on the upper right side of the screen labeled “Control Panel”.

 

 Click the Tool Box tab on the left side of the web page.

On the left click “StartCom CA Certificates”.

Now we will download the certificates necessary for the certificate chain.  Click the link “StartCom Root CA (PEM encoded)” and save it to a file.  Then click “Class 1 Intermediate Server CA” and save it to a file as well.  The file names should be “ca.pem” and “sub.class1.server.ca.pem” respectively.
