NGINX: Install a certificate

After your certificate request is approved, you can download your SSL and intermediate certificates from the SSL application. For more information see Downloading Your SSL Certificate. These files must be installed on your Web server.

You can also download the intermediate certificate bundle from the repository.

To Install SSL and Intermediate Certificates

  1. Copy your SSL certificate file and the certificate bundle file to your Nginx server.
  2. You should already have a key file on the server from when you generated your certificate request.
  3. Edit your Nginx configuration to reference these files. The exact configuration file you edit depends on your version of Nginx, your OS platform, or the method used to install Nginx.

Your SSL Certificate is installed. If you have problems, please see Test your SSL's configuration to help diagnose issues.

For more information on how to configure your Nginx server, see http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/configuring_https_servers.html#chains.
