TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Installing SSL Cert

gbrehm's picture

I'm trying to install our own wildcard cert on an 11.1 Moodle appliance.  I've edited /etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl with our new cert info but when I test with Digicert's SSL tester the TurnKey SSL cert still shows up.


Any advice?

Have you restarted Apache?

Apache needs to be restarted after making config changes.

service apache2 restart

Thanks for getting back to me Jeremy, I had tried that.


Apparently I was editing the wrong file.  The correct was /etc/apache2/sites-available/moodle.

Nice work

Glad you got it sorted.

Correct, you found the right

Correct, you found the right configuration file. BTW, you might consider just replacing the global /etc/ssl/certs/cert.pem certificate as it's used for other services as well, such as webmin and shellinabox.

I wrote a blog post about this a while back that might be of interest (to you and/or others who come across this thread).
