This topic is one that I am ignorant on and appreciate any guidance.
I have a wild card SSL installed on one of my CentOS boxes.
As I understand it, this server was used as a sort of master when originally generating and receiving the wild card SSL cert (got the cert from GoDaddy BTW).
So, now I must export some file(s) from that server so that I can import it/them to another server.
Were do I begin?
I did manage to generate a .cer from a pem belonging to my master server via;
openssl x509 in ca.pem -inform PEM -out somefile.crt.cer -outform DER
But I honestly do not under stand what I did here and have a feeling this is incomplete as aren't public and private key involved some how?
I have my ca.csr (my request file), ca.key (my private key) and ca.pem (my public key) files in hand and ready. A backup has been made for testing.
Thanks in advance for any info.
