I purchased a certificate and received a zip file. It contains two files:
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.crt (includes other letters in place of x)
My application on a Linux server has an interface to add previously requested cert based on teh CSR. I can read the certs with OPENSSL, which is necessary to add them . Here is what the documentation says:
"When you receive the certificate from your certificate authority, copy all of it including the BEGIN CERTIFICATE and END CERTIFICATE lines into the box below then click Save Certificate.
If you receive a certificate authority chain (intermediate certificates), do not include it here. You will have the opportunity to provides this information on a separate page once you install your certificate"
Which certificate should I add first and which is the intermediate ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you, but it is still not clear. Other than the bundle I received, what is the other *.crt file in the zip ?
If I go to the repository, how do I know what intermediate certificate I need ? Is it under the heading "GoDaddy Certificate Chain" ? Maybe "GoDaddy Secure Server Certificate (Intermediate Certificate)" ?
You will recieve 2 files,
one something like
and another is
You wont need the key if it is just renewal.
To install the renewed certificate,
