Installation – Red Hat Linux Secure Web Server

Step 1: Install Intermediate CA Certificate
Secure Site
If you are installing a Secure Site Certificate, you need to first install the Secure Site Intermediate CA Certificate.
Secure Site Pro
If you are installing a Secure Site Pro Certificate, you need to first install the Secure Site Pro Intermediate CA Certificate.
1. Save the Intermediate CA Certificate as: /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/intermediate.crt.
2. Add the following directive to your /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file, within the virtual host tags that define your secure Web server and with the other SSL directives:
SSLCACertificateFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/intermediate.crt
Step 2: Install the SSL Certificate
VeriSign will email you your certificate. If the certificate is an attachment (Cert.cer), you can use the file. If the certificate is in the body of the email, copy and paste it into a text file (such as OriginalCert.txt) using Vi or Notepad. Do not use Microsoft Word or other word processing programs that may add characters. Confirm that there are no extra lines or spaces in the file.
Save the certificate into a file and give the name and path to that file to the SSLCertificateFile directive. Remember that you need to add the key file in as well (SSLCertificateKeyFile directive).
SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key
