How to install intermediate certificate on an Apache server with OpenSSL

1. Copy the chain certificate, from the certificate pick up page, and paste it into a text editor. The certificate should have this form:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

MIIETTCCAzWgAwIBAgIESyDyzjANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQUFADCBsTELMAkGA1UE

BhMCVVMxFjAUBgNVBAoTDUVudHJ1c3QsIEluYy4xOTA3BgNVBAsTMHd3dy5l

-----END CERTIFICATE-----


Make sure to copy the

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

and the

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

and that there is no trailing spaces or carriage returns.

2. Save the text file using a .crt file extension.

3. Rename the file to a .crt file extension.

4. Open your server’s HTTPD.CONF or SSL.CONF file and locate your virtual host entry for the domain to be secured by this certificate.

?If you are not sure where you HTTPD.CONF file is located run the following command:

openssl version -a

You will see at end of command output "OPENSSLDIR:" this is the path that is configured where OpenSSL will look for configuration files

5. Add the following line under the virtual host entry of your site/domain in the HTTPD.CONF or SSL.CONF file:

SSLCertificateChainFile <path to certificate>/<chain certificate>.crt

Sample of the HTTPD.CONF or SSL.CONF:
