Installing an SSL Certificate: Cobalt RaQ4

This guide covers the RaQ 4, XTR and 550 devices.

1. Go to the "Server Management" screen.

2. Click the green icon next to the virtual site on which you want to enable SSL. The "Site Management" screen appears.

3. Click "Site Settings" on the left side.

4. Open the certificate file in a text editor (your_domain_com.crt - typical name) and copy and paste the whole contents into the "Certificate" box.

5. Change the drop-down to "Use manually entered certificate" and click "Save Changes".

6. Next, the intermediate must be installed. This must be done via the command-line on the server, which involves logging in via SSH.

7. Login to the server via SSH. Change to the "root" user.

Please Note: You may need an administrator to perform this task, as incorrect commands can cause data loss.

8. Create a new text-file on the server with an editor ("vi" or similar). Into it, paste the contents of each of the intermediate certificates one after another. Save the file.

9. Edit the Apache configuration file on the server. This is usually located in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf.

Navigate to the bottom of the file.

10. Insert a new line and enter the following, replacing the path and filename to the file from step 8.

SSLCACertificateFile / path/to/intermediate-file.ext

11. Save the changes, and restart Apache (via the administration panel or the command line).
