How to install a QuickSSL certificate on   BEA Weblogic 5.1

Solution

To install your QuickSSL certificate on a BEA Weblogic 5.1 server, perform the following steps:
 
This document provides instructions for installing your SSL certificate. If you are unable to use these instructions for your server, we recommend that you contact either the vendor of your software or an organization that supports BEA Weblogic.


Step 1: Obtain the GeoTrust DV CA Certificate
 
a) Download the GeoTrust DV CA from the following solution: INFO1421
 
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 GeoTrust DV CA into a text file and save as "intermediate.pem".
 
 
Step 2: Download your certificate
 
  1. Download your certificate as per the instruction on the following solution:
    • GeoTrust Security Center, refer to solution SO22158
    • GeoTrust Enterprise Security Center, refer to solution SO21128
    • GeoTrust User Portal (e.g., certificate purchased through Retail or Partners), refer to solution SO15168
       
  2. Rename the certificate filename with the .pem extension. For example: cert.pem
     
Step 3. Update WebLogic properties file:
 
  1. Open the "weblogic.properties" file in a text editor. This file is located in the server's root directory
     
  2. Edit the following directives contained within the "weblogic.properies" file, under Server certificates for SSL:
     
        weblogic.system.SSLListenPort=443
        weblogic.security.ssl.enable=true
     
        weblogic.security.certificate.server=cert.pem
        weblogic.security.key.server=domainname-key.der    
        weblogic.security.certificate.authority=intermediate.pem

  3. Stop and start your WebLogic Server.
