install SSL certificate apache Debian /ubuntu /centos


Upload files to etc/ssl/  Make SSL Read by Root only.

Configure the virtual host file with SSL PORT 443


<VirtualHost yourdomain:443>
DocumentRoot /var/www/html
SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile /path/to/your_domain_name.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /path/to/your_private.key
SSLCertificateChainFile /path/to/DigiCertCA.crt

Generally, we use port 80 instead of port 443 SSL port.


Test your Apache configuration (apachectl configtest)  before restarting the server avoids Downtime on production sites.
