CPanel Transfer a SSL cert. to another server
please, can anyone tell me how to transfer a SSL cert from server to server? Right now i transferd the account but now i have to install/transfer also the cert. Is there any guide ?
PS: The cert. is from freessl. Sent an e-mail yesterday but no replay yet.
thanks a lot
You would need to create a new CSR and then apply for the certificate to be re-issued, mabye check the F.A.Q on their site (if they have one) most SSL providers normally list what you need to do if you move servers.
No, you can just transfer the entire CSR from.
I did it once for a customer but did not give him a guarantee up front that it would actually work.
He send me the .csr file, the private key file and the certificate.
I then copied/pasted them into the cpanel ssl boxes.
Worked like a charm.
Do you own both servers?
If yes, what we have done (many times) is this:
tar -cf private.tar /usr/share/ssl/private/www.domain*
tar -cf cert.tar /usr/share/ssl/certs/www.domain*
tar -cf ca.tar /usr/share/ssl/CA/*.crt
(replace www.domain with the actual SSL domain)
You can then move them to a FTP/SCP/SFTP/Web accessible location.
Download them and untar them to the same location.
Thereafter, you can then go to WHM and setup a new SSL certicate. Just enter the domain and use the "Fetch" function. Install and you are done.
Alternatively, open the various files with a text editor, and copy the certs etc. into WHM SSL Setup screens.
