title2. Install the Certificate Chain file

If your signed certificate needs a certificate chain file containing all the intermediate certificates, then you need to install the certificate chain file as well. To do this, you need to edit a configuration file and specify the chain file's location.

(lightbulb) If your intermediate certificates are not part of the standard ca-bundle, you must:

  • Install the intermediate certificates on the FileCloud server

This will prevent issues with the Desktop client apps.

To install the certificate chain file:

1. To specify the location, open the following file for editing:


Code Block
C:\xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-ssl.conf 

2. Find the following line:

Code Block
#SSLCertificateChainFile "c:/Apache24/conf/conf/ssl.crt/server-ca.crt"

3. Remove the hashtag (#) from the beginning of the line so that it is no longer a comment and looks like the following line:

Code Block
SSLCertificateChainFile "c:/Apache24/conf/conf/ssl.crt/server-ca.crt"

4. Save and close the file.

5. Rename the chain file to the following:

Code Block
server-ca.crt

6. Copy the certification chain file into the conf directory using the following command:

(If FileCloud is installed not under the default location c:\xampp, then copy the file to the appropriate location.)

Code Block
copy server-ca.crt C:\xampp\apache\conf\ssl.crt\

7. Open the following file for editing:

Code Block
C:\xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-ssl.conf

8. Find the following line:

Code Block
ServerName "www.example.com:443"

9. Change the ServerName in quotes to your domain name.

(warning) In the serverName do not use * . For wild card certificates, use the FQDN excluding the *

(lightbulb) The domain name should also match the FQDN/common name field of your CSR. Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is a data file that contains the Public Key and your domain details.
