Updating the Vesta Control SSL Certificate

July 14, 2015 Leave a comment

The Vesta Control Panel SSL certificates is contained in the following 2 files

  1. /usr/local/vesta/ssl/certificate.key and
  2. /usr/local/vesta/ssl/certificate.crt

One easy way to generate SSL certs for Vesta, is to goto https://www.digicert.com/easy-csr/openssl.htm and fill in the blanks, after which it will generate the necessary openssl command to run to generate the CSR as well as the key file

Once you send this CSR to digicert and complete the validation process, you can then download the pem file from digicert

Now replace the .key file with that generated by openssl and the crt file with the contents from the downloaded PEM file

and finally issue the following command to restart vesta

service vesta restart
