How do I install an SSL Certificate onto a JSCAPE MFT Server?
This knowledge base article will describe the process of installing your QuoVadis certificate onto a JSCAPE MFT Server in 3 parts. This article assumes that you have already created a pending private key in your Key Manager.
Part I - Creating the Certificate Bundle
describes the process to create the Certificate Bundle that you will need to ensure that your certificate is trusted in all browsers correctly.
- First you must obtain your certificate in PEM format. By default,
QuoVadis issues certificates in this format. You must convert this file
if you have your SSL certificate in a different format.
Note: QuoVadis provides a conversion tool at https://pkiwidgets.quovadisglobal.com/pkiwidgets/convertCert.aspx.
- Download the JSCAPE_MFT_qvsslicag2_bundle.txt file.
- Open the both your certificate and the JSCAPE_MFT_qvsslicag2_bundle.txt using notepad (or a similar simple text editor).
- Copy the entire contents of your certificate and paste them onto the line named <Highlight this line and paste in your certificate here>, replacing it. Be sure to include the "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----" and "-----END CERTIFICATE-----" lines.
The file should now look something like this:
(The certificate you pasted)
(QuoVadis Global SSL G2)
(QuoVadis Root CA 2)
- Once you have made these changes, save this new file you have created.
Part II - Installing the Certificate
walks you through the process of taking the certificate bundle file you created in Part I
and importing it into your private key.
- Start off by opening Key Manager. You can do this by navigating to File and then selecting the Key Manager file from the main menu.
- When the Key Manager dialog appears, click on the Server Keys tab at the top.
- Click on and highlight the private key that you created the CSR from in the left list.
- Click on the Import Certificates button at the bottom.
- In the Import Certificates window, click on the Browse button and navigate to the new file that you created at the end of Part I.
- Leave the File Password field blank.
- Leave the Certificates alias in file field blank
- Click on the OK button.
Part III - Assigning the Certificate
assigns the certificate for use so that it is visible to users when they browse to your website.
- In the JSCAPE MFT Server Manager Settings, select the Web settings from the left-hand list.
- Click on the Web tab at the top and drop down the Private key field to match the new certificate that you want to display on your website.
- Restart the JSCAPE MFT Server services.
