    Default How to add a renewed bought SSL certificate to Zimbra?

    Hi,

    as I'm pretty new to SSL and Zimbra, this might be a stupid question.

    My SSL certificate connected to the Zimbra server is not valid anymore. I bought a new certificate and would like to add it.

    What do I have to do in order to renew the server's certificate?

    In /opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/commercial there are four files:
    commercial.crt commercial.csr commercial.key commercial_ca.crt

    I replaced each file's content with the new certificate. What's the next step? Or did I do anything wrong yet? :-)

    Thanks!

    Hey z29,

    Hope this helps.


    1) create a directory /root/certs
    2) place the attached file in there
    3) place the server_cert in there and name it commercial.crt
    4) clear the contents of /opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/commercial of all files EXCEPT commercial.key and commercial.csr
    5) verify that the cert and private key match via this command
    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr verifycrt comm /opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/commercial/commercial.key /root/certs/commercial.crt /root/certs/commercial_ca.crt
    6)if the output looks good, go ahead and deploy the cert via this command
    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr deploycrt comm /root/certs/commercial.crt /root/certs/commercial_ca.crt
    7) if the output looks good at this point, restart the zimbra services
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol restart

    Cheers,
    Raun

    Default Works like a charm...

    This is exactly what is needed to be up and running again after 5 minutes.
    Thank you!

    Regards, Daniel
