Install the Commodo SSL cert

Combine everything for nginx:

  1. Combine the above crt files into a bundle (the order matters, here):cat www_example_com.crt COMODORSADomainValidationSecureServerCA.crt COMODORSAAddTrustCA.crt AddTrustExternalCARoot.crt > ssl-bundle.crt
  2. Store the bundle wherever nginx expects to find it:mkdir -p /etc/nginx/ssl/example_com/ mv ssl-bundle.crt /etc/nginx/ssl/example_com/
  3. Ensure your private key is somewhere nginx can read it, as well.:mv example_com.key /etc/nginx/ssl/example_com/
  4. Make sure your nginx config points to the right cert file and to the private key you generated earlier:server { listen 443; ssl on; ssl_certificate /etc/nginx/ssl/example_com/ssl-bundle.crt; ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/ssl/example_com/example_com.key; # side note: only use TLS since SSLv2 and SSLv3 have had recent vulnerabilities ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2; # … }
  5. Restart nginx.
