These are the steps I took to get SSL working on an Apache server running on Windows Server 2008R2…
First log on to one other server running Server2008R2 and there I exported my IIS certificate into a .pfx file
- Start > Run > mmc.exe
- Click the ‘Console’ menu and then click ‘Add/Remove Snap-in’.
- Click the ‘Add’ button and then choose the ‘certificates’ snap-in and click on ‘Add’.
- Select ‘Computer Account’ then click ‘Next’.
- Select ‘Local Computer’ and then click ‘OK’.
- Click ‘Close’ and then click ‘OK’.
- Expand the menu for ‘Certificates’ and click on the ‘Personal’ folder.
- Right click on the certificate that you want to export and select ‘All tasks’ -> ‘Export’.
- A wizard will appear. Make sure you check the box to include the private key and continue through with this wizard until you have a filename.PFX file.
And then on the Server running Server2008R2 and Apache webserver
Open openssl.exe which is usually Apache2 is under “C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2”
- pkcs12 -in filename.pfx -nocerts -out key.pem
- pkcs12 -in filename.pfx -clcerts -nokeys -out cert.pem
- rsa -in key.pem -out server.key
Then open these files with Notepad and saved them as here below
- key.pem > server.key
- cert.pem > cert.cert
- SSLCertificateFile certs/cert.cert
- SSLCertificateKeyFile certs/server.key
- SSLCertificateChainFile certs/gd_bundle.crt got this from Go Daddy
Save ssl.conf and reboot apache
