|Hi Jerry,

One is the public SSL certificate file itself and the other is probably 
the intermediate CA file. You also need the private key from whoever 
created the CSR for your wildcard certificate to be validated. Without 
the private key, the wildcard certificate is worthless.

For Apache in /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf ... it would look like 
something like this:

|   SSLCertificateFile /path/to/name_ee.rt|
|    SSLCertificateKeyFile /path/to/privatekey.key|
|    SSLCertificateChainFile /path/to/name)il.crt
