Subject Re: SSL on Tomcat5
Date Wed, 11 May 2011 08:20:33 GMT
Hi,

If you use APR, the private key & certificate should be in PEM format as
documented in http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/apr.html#HTTPS

 *SSLCertificateFile*

Name of the file that contains the server certificate. The format is
PEM-encoded.
SSLCertificateKeyFile

Name of the file that contains the server private key. The format is
PEM-encoded. The default value is the value of "SSLCertificateFile" and in
this case both certificate and private key have to be in this file (NOT
RECOMMENDED).
