Installing the SSL certificate on the bitnami server

Hi

I plan to get a digicert SSL certificate and would like to install it on the server. I want both http and https running on the server. Where do I install the server and what are the changes required to apache config file?

Could you tell us what is the application and version you are using? Also the platform, please. There are several wiki entries for almost each application at:

http://wiki.bitnami.com

There are also some general entries about SSL such as:

http://wiki.bitnami.com/Components/Apache#How_to_create_a_SSL_certificate.3f

I hope it helps. Regards.

LAMP Ubuntu OS on AWS.

I intend to get the SSL certificate from digicert or Godaddy. I would need to install the certificate on the server and also configure apache for http and https access. How do i go about it? I would like pointers on these two aspects.

So, please check the

/opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf

There should be the following directives:

SSLCertificateFile
SSLCertificateKeyFile
SSLCertificateChainFile

Just point them to your personal certificate provided by your certificate authority as it is indicated in the differents tab of the link below:

http://wiki.bitnami.com/Components/Apache#How_to_enable_SSL_to_access_through_https.3f

Regards.

Thanks guys, I’ve found this topic very interesting.
I would like to install a CA certificate directly on xyz.bitnamiapp.com subdomain, but I’ve discovered that every CA allows a domain certification only.
So I would like to understand if you have used a CA that allows to certificate the subdomain or if you have found a different way to manage this (like a domain with redirection on bitnamiapp subdomain), or what else?
Thank you!

Hi @IronFritz,
I’m not sure if I understand what you mean, so I’m going to use and example to try to explain it. If I’m wrong tell it to me please.
You want to buy a certificate for server.bitnamiapp.com, and you want to use it in a subdomain, such as wordpress.server.bitnamiapp.com
If this is what you ask, the answer is yes, you can do it, but be sure that you buy a certificate for the domain *.server.bitnamiapp.com. This kind of certificates are called wildcard certificates.
Hope it works for you

You need to change “/opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/bitnami/bitnami.conf” for Google Compute

I want to certify domain name. How should I do?

Hello @gunlaeguncha,

We have specific guides explaining how to create SSL certs for our apps in our documentation and through this forum. You can start by checking this link:

https://docs.bitnami.com/general/apps/wordpress/administration/create-ssl-certificate-apache/

Please open a new thread in case you need more help from our support team so that we keep each thread relevant to their initial post. I will be closing this thread as it is an old one already resolved.
