Update certificate

Step one - creating a certificate.pem file

Make sure you have the certificate as a­ . crt or .pem file. You should have received a certificate with a private key from your provider. Some providers send two or more files containing this. To handle the certificate, we need to extract the information from the certificate and private key and combine these two into one certificate.

If you use notepad to open the certificate (recommended), you will see this:

Lots of data here...

When you open the private key certificate, you should see this:

Lots of data here...

Or this:

Lots of data here...

Start by creating a new .txt file in a folder and then copy the content of the private key into the new .txt file.

Now, open the certificate file, copy the content and paste it in after the private key.

Your file should look like this:


Save the file by selecting all file types instead of .txt and name the file 'certificate.pem'.

Step two - installation

To install the certificate, you will need FTP software (you can freely select the FTP software you prefer).

Now, connect to the Foxbox using the server's IP address. This example uses 'FileZilla'.

Filezilla foxbox update certificate.jpg

When the client has connected, you will have the folder view where you can navigate to '/etc/sms/scripts'. You can use the folder view to navigate back to the path or you can simply paste the path into the remote site bar and press enter.

Now, you should be able to locate the certificate.pem file inside the folder.

Continue by navigating the local file view to the new certificate that we created in step 1 and upload it to the Foxbox.

Steep three

Open or download the SSH client program. This example uses 'putty'.

When you have the ssh client open, please connect using the Foxbox server's IP address.

When successfully connected, please use the root user to login, as it is the only user with permissions to restart the apache server.

In order to restart the apache server, please type:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Press enter.

When the service is restarted successfully, 'OK' will appear in green text. If the service was unsuccessful, the error message will appear in red text.

After successfully restarting, open the Foxbox url and verify that the certificate has been changed and is valid.
