Re: Wildcard certificate question

Double and triple check the password. :) also make sure the sever cert is the first in the list when you created the pem file

Re: Wildcard certificate question

Ok thanks. But I don't have any password. I have generated my CSR with this site : https://csrgenerator.com/ and I have a RSA PRIVATE KEY only.

Re: Wildcard certificate question

CPPM requires you to enter a password.

You maybe able to reset the password on the pkey, but with you being new to Certs I would recommend to just do a new CSR.

Generate it with CPPM and make sure you download both .csr and .pkey Have Godaddy reissue the cert. They usually give you a couple day buffer to redo it, but you might have to call into their support to reissue you the cert token.
Thank You,

Re: Wildcard certificate question

The problem is that I can't do a CSR with CPPM because I can't have a CN with *.mydomain.ch.

 

Thanks

Re: Wildcard certificate question

Its been a while since Ive done this. Give this a try

 

You will need to install OpenSSL

 

 

> openssl pkcs12 -export -inkey <yourServerPrivateKeyFile> -in <yourServerCertificateFile> -certfile<intermediateCAFilename> -certfile <rootCAFilename> -out <newCertifcateFile>.pfx

 

You might have to export it out as a .pem

 

Thank You,
Troy

Re: Wildcard certificate question

Make sure that when you combined the certs that they are in the right order and they are the correct certs.

You don't have to always combine the certs its just recommended because not all device trust the full chain


Server cert
Intermediate (there might be more than one intermediate)
Root CA

Open the original cert they sent you and look at the last tab and it should show you the full chain
