25.8.6. How to configure the server to use the new key

The steps to configure the Apache HTTP Server to use the new key are:
  • Obtain the signed certificate from the CA after submitting the CSR.
  • Copy the certificate to the path, for example /etc/pki/tls/certs/www.example.com.crt
  • Edit /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf. Change the SSLCertificateFile and SSLCertificateKey lines to be.
    SSLCertificateFile /etc/pki/tls/certs/www.example.com.crt
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/pki/tls/private/www.example.com.key
    Note that the www.example.com part should match the argument passed on the genkey command.
