Ok, I admit, I got sucked in by the NetworkChuck YouTube video on setting up a a free Kemp load balancing VM. In his video he walked us through getting a root certificate from CF and downloading the origin CF certificate and installing in on the Kemp VM. Seemed simple enough. Now, I’m trying to install it on my Apache server, and am totally lost. I had an existing certificate (not sure what kind anymore) purchased through NoIp which I set up 5 years ago.
I’m a bit lost, first off I seem to have a lot of extra code in my SSL.conf file in Apache, and second the keys I have been using are .crt. I thought it would be as simple as adding the coping the three files to the Apache server, and changing the .conf to match the new file name. However, even if I take Kemp out of the picture I can’t get it working.
The CF documentation sends me off off to a DigiCert help page that talks about generating new credentials there.
Here’s what I have in my dashboard when I select SSL/TLS:
- Full (strict)
- Edge Certificates
- Hosts (*.mydomain.com, mydomain.com), type universal, active
- Always us HTTPS (on)
- Client Certificates (nothing)
- Origin Certificates (*.mydomain.com, mydomain.com)
- Custom Hostnames (nothing)
I’ve download the CF root certificate from Managing Cloudflare Origin CA certificates
I’d love some help figuring this out.
Thanks in advance!
