To install your SSL Certificate on C2Net Stronghold, follow the instructions below:

This document provides instructions for installing SSL Certificates. If you are unable to use these instructions for your server, Thawte recommends that you contact either the vendor of your software or an organization that supports C2Net Stronghold.

Step 1: Obtain the SSL Intermediate CA certificate

a) Download the SSL Intermediate CA from the following solution:  INFO1384

Note: Be sure to use Vi or Notepad as word processing programs like Microsoft Notepad may add additional characters that may render the certificate unusable.

b) Copy and paste the SSL Intermediate CA certificate into a text file and save as intermediate.crt


Step 2: Install the Thawte Certificate

  1. Download your certificate as per the instruction on the following solution: SO13187
  2. If you already have a temp cert in your /ServerRoot/ssl/certs directory, move or delete it. Run the command "getca servername" where "servername" is the same name created during generation of the key or certificate request ("genkey servername" or "genreq servername").
  3. Return to the notepad file: cert.txt containing the certificate and copy and the content, as shown below, to your clipboard:
    "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----"


    "-----END CERTIFICATE-----"
  4. Paste the contents into the terminal window where you've run "getca".
  5. Enter Control-D or the appropriate EOF character for your terminal.


Step 3: Installing the Intermediate CA Certificate

  1. Change the SSLCACertificateFile directive in your httpd.conf file to this: SSLCACertificateFile certs/intermediate.crt
  2. Return to the notepad file: intermediate.txt listed above and copy the certificate contents as shown below to the clipboard:

    "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----"


    "-----END CERTIFICATE-----"

  3. Paste the content into the file "ssl/certs/intermediate.crt" located in your ServerRoot directory.

  4. Make sure your customers are using the most recent releases of Netscape or Internet Explorer. Older browsers may cause errors.
