    I have a GeoTrust SAN certificate... I'm trying to get it to install for the past 3 hours with a lot of frustration.

    I've had this issue before, but the old method doesn't seem to work anymore since I switched to Apache 2.4...

    How do I install the certificate properly? Using the ISPConfig configuration doesn't seem to work, nothing gets changed when I add the cert there...

    Please help :S

    I don't know if this helps but I just got one from for 5 year for 24.00 and I went to the admin panel create the ssl copy the request to them after I process I only have to put in the domain crt and the bundle and save it takes about 2 to five munites to take affect and it takes 20 minutes for the ssl to work on the ssl side if you are using the lates ISPConfig Version:
    that is how I did it no manual unix installation and it works

    I'm using a SAN cert from GeoTrust... My original GeoTrust cert still works on a different site, same server... both vhosts seem to be configured the same, but it's not working...

    Whenever I uncomment SSLEngine on, it failes to load apache
    Actio 'start' failed

    And the error log doesn't provide a proper clue...

    Edit: Damn it, I've checked the key-file, crt file and chain file over and over again, but I overlooked one single space in the chain file at the last line, that messed up the whole thing :S

    So now it's working, at least for one site, gotta do another... But the file should be fine now :)

    Edit 2: At it shows the security lock in IE for a brief moment when you load the page, but after that it dissapeares... Does anyone know how that could be? the google adsense maybe?

    Buy the ISPConfig 3.05 Tutorial. It teaches you how to. It is very easy. :D
