Installing an SSL Certificate: WebStar

1. Once you have received your SSL certificate files, open a text editor and paste the contents of each certificate one after another in the following order:

    1. The Primary Certificate (your_domain_name.crt)
    2. The Intermediate Certificate(s) (UTN AddTrust, ComodoUTN, Comodo High Assurance)
    3. The Root Certificate (TrustedRoot.crt)

Make sure that you include the beginning and end tags on each certificate. The result should look like this:

——BEGIN CERTIFICATE——
(Your Primary SSL certificate: you_domain_name.crt)
——END CERTIFICATE——
——BEGIN CERTIFICATE——
(Your Intermediate certificate: (UTN AddTrust, ComodoUTN, Comodo high Assurance))
——END CERTIFICATE——
——BEGIN CERTIFICATE——
(Your Root Certificate: AddTrustExternal.crt)
——END CERTIFICATE——

2. Save the combined file as cert.pem.

Please Note: If you are using an older version of Webstar 4D, it might require a certificate formatted as a combined Netscape file. Netscape format only applies to 4D versions 4 or older, version 5+ uses a .pem file.

8. Select the item for the IP address which corresponds to the host name of the current certificate.

9. On the Security popup menu, select SSL 2 and SSL 3.

10. Click on the Certificate Choose button. Select the cert.pem file
