Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Trying to get https working with letsencrypt certs...

Posted by Jim Lynch on
Hi Gustaf and everyone,

I'm given to understand that web servers need the cert and the private key... do they need the fullchain (combo of chain and cert) or just the cert? Also, I don't see a way to provide the private key, would I have two certificate lines, one for the private key and one for the cert itself? Or, is there a specific attribute name for the private key? Or, would I create a new pem file with openssl, containing the cert and the key? Also, the nsssl documentation shows it needs the component parts of the cert in some sorted order... How can I accomplish that?
