Users often need to import an existing certificate from an Apache HTTPD server into Xeams. The following steps demonstrate how to accomplish this task.
An SSL certificate has 3 components:
An Important Note: When you download a certificate from a CA, such as GoDaddy or Comodo, that only contains two of the three components mentioned above. Those files do not contain your private key, which is typically stored on the machine where you created the CSR for the certificate.
Therefore, in order to export an SSL certificate you will need:
openssl- this utility typically comes with most Linux servers. For Windows, visit https://www.openssl.org/source/ to download.
keytool- this utility comes with Xeams and is located in $INSTALL_DIR\jre\bin folder. $INSTALL_DIR refers to the folder where Xeams is installed.
Click here for instructions on how to export certificate from Apache to a format that is understood by Xeams.
The output of the above instructions will result in a
xeams.kesstore, to make it more meaningful.
$INSTALL_DIR/config/xeams.keystore. Again, $INSTALL_DIR refers to the folder where Xeams is installed.
config/xeams.keystorefor Keystore file name, specify the password you specified when exporting the certificate and put
PKCS12for Keystore type.
