2. Change the SSLCACertificateFile directive in your httpd.conf file to this: SSLCACertificateFile certs/intermediate-ca.cert
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.
1. Run getca and specify both the name of the server that owns the ID and the name of the temporary certificate file. For example:
# getca hostname /tmp/
2. This saves the Secure Site Server ID to the file SSLTOP/certs/hostname.cert Remove the temporary file. For example:
# rm/tmp/
3. Restart the server.
