Cert Installation: Cobalt RaQ based Servers

Installing a Certificate on Cobalt RaQ based Servers

This guide is intended to show you how to install a certificate on Cobalt RaQ servers. This covers the RaQ 4, XTR and 550 devices.

You will have received your certificate from us, a file typically named 'your_domain_com.crt' as well as the intermediate [download root & intermediate certificates from Root & Intermediate Certificates]. The root certificate [download root & intermediate certificates from Root & Intermediate Certificates] is also provided.

  1. Go to the 'Server Management' screen.


  2. Click the green icon [wrench for RaQ, pencil for XTR] next to the virtual site on which you want to enable SSL. The 'Site Management' screen appears.


  3. Click 'Site Settings' on the left side. [Then 'General' for XTR]


  4. Open the certificate file in a text-editor (typically named 'your_domain_com.crt') and copy and paste the whole content into the 'Certificate' box.

  5. Change the drop-down to 'Use manually entered certificate' and click 'Save Changes'.


  6. Next, the intermediate must be installed. This must be done via the command-line on the server, which involves logging in via SSH.


  7. Log in to the server via SSH. Change to the 'root' user. Note: you may need an administrator perform this task, as incorrect commands can cause data loss.


  8. Create a new text-file on the server with an editor ('vi' or similar). Into it, paste the contents of each of the intermediate certificates ([download root & intermediate certificates from Root & Intermediate Certificates]) one after another. Save the file.


  9. Edit the Apache configuration file on the server. This is usually located in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf. Navigate to the bottom of the file.


  10. Insert a new line, and enter the following, replacing the path and filename to the file from Step 8:

  11. SSLCACertificateFile /path/to/intermediate-file.ext


  12. Save the changes, and restart Apache (via the administration panel, or via the command line).
