    Copy your Certificate into the directory that you will be using to hold your certificates. In this example we will use /etc/ssl/crt/. Both the public and private key files will already be in this directory. The private key used in the example will be labeled private.key and the public key will be yourdomainname.cer.

    It is recommended that you make the directory that contains the private key file only readable by root.

    Step two: Install the Intermediate Certificates

    You will need to install the chain certificates (intermediates) in order for browsers to trust your certificate. As well as your SSL certificate (yourdomainname.cer) two other certificates, named UTN-USERFirst-Hardware.crt and Digi-SignCADigi-SSLXp.crt or
    Digi-SignCADigi-SSLXs.crt, are also attached to the email from Digi-Sign.

    Apache users will not require these certificates. Instead you can install the intermediate certificates using a 'bundle' method.

      1. Copy this ca-bundle file to the same directory as httpd.conf (this contains all of the CA certificates in the chain).
