Q. I am having problems uploading an SSL certificate into InterMapper. I have included both the signed certificate and private key in a text file. When I try and upload it, InterMapper generates an error.
A. In order for InterMapper to upload a certificate created from a certificate request it didn't generate, it needs both the certificate and the key in the same file.
You should run a few openssl commands in terminal to point out problems with your certificate.
This one should tell you if the signed certificate looks good:
openssl x509 -noout -text -in server.crt
This one will tell you if the included key is good:
openssl rsa -noout -text -in server.crt
They both assume your file is named server.crt.
If you sees errors, you need to fix them before InterMapper can upload the certificate.
