Update certificate

Step one

Make sure you have the certificate as a­ . crt or .pem file. You should have a certificate with a private key. Some providers send 2 or more files contain this. To handle the certificate, we need to extra the information from the certificate and private key – and combine these two into one certificate.

If you use notepad to open the certificate, you should see something like this

Lots of data here...

When you open the private key certificate it should look some what similar to this.

Lots of data here...

Or something like this

Lots of data here...

Now create a new txt file in a folder, copy the content of the private key into the file.

After that open the certificate file and copy the content and paste it after the private key.

Your file should look something like this:


Now save the file by selecting all files types instead of txt and name the file certificate.pem

Steep two - installation

To install the certificate, you will need FTP software, you can freely select any of these

After that connect to the foxbox using the IP address of the server. I’m using FileZilla for this example.

Filezilla foxbox update certificate.jpg

When the client has connected, and you get the folder view, you can navigate to /etc/sms/scripts, this can be done but using the folder view to navigate back and into the path or you can simple paste the path into remote site bar and press enter.

Now you should be able to locate the certificate.pem file inside the folder to verify you’re at the correct path.

Now navigate the local file view to the new certificate that we created inside step 1 and upload it to the foxbox.

Steep three

Now open or download the SSH client program, i’m using putty for this example.

When you have the ssh client opened, please connect using the IP address of the foxbox server.

When you are connected please use the root user to login as it’s the only user with permissions to restart the apache server.

To restart the apache server enter:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

And press enter.

When the service is restarted successfully, there should appear a green text with the text OK, if unsuccessful the text will be written in red contain the error message.

Now go the url of the foxbox and verify the certificate has been changed and is valid.
