Subject RE: [users@httpd] copy ssl cert from old machine to replacement machine?
Date Fri, 04 Nov 2005 08:21:15 GMT
Plain text please...

The certificate is bound to the website - not the physical machine. The certificate is just
a file like any other. You simply have to copy the file containing the certificate to the
new machine.

If you change the filestructure on the new machine, you need to define the path to the cert
and key in the SSLCertificateFile and SSLCertificateKeyFile directives.
