Subject RE: Installing CA cert on SSL enabled webserver

So, your web server is using a self-signed cert, and not the one you
purchased. Installation of your 3rd part cert depends on which HTTPS
connector you're using, APR (OpenSSL-based) or the JSSE-based connector.
Good documentation on both are out there, but make sure you follow the
correct one or you'll get really confused.

The browser says the cert is issued by the server itself and it should
be "issued" by the 3rd party CA (in this case, GoDaddy), right?

Mike, 

Sounds like you installed it perfectly, otherwise no https connection to
your web server would be possible. The problem with trust is on the
client/browser side. You need to install the 3rd party Root CA cert on
your client so your browser will trust your server's certificate. 

Regards,
Steve

Subject: Installing CA cert on SSL enabled webserver

Hi all-



I have a question about Tomcat 7.0.27.  I have a webserver that I
enabled S= SL access for. I have purchased a 3rd party cert. However; I
am having trouble installing the cert on the server.  Whenever, I go to
https://myserver.mycompany.com,

I receive the "This site is untrusted" message.  My question is: How do
you install a 3rd party SSL cert on Tomcat 7?  Thanks in advance.



Mike
