Filed under: Apache, Tomcat — Tags: , , — vicker313 @ 11:27 pm

After Setup Tomcat with Apache Web Server in Linux, you might want to transfer the SSL certificate from Apache Tomcat Server to Apache Web Server.

  1. Convert Tomcat SSL Certificate to Apache Web Server SSL Certificate:
    • keytool -importkeystore -scrkeystore [tomcat key file] -destkeystore [new p12 key file] -srcstoretype jks -deststoretype pkcs12
    • openssl pkcs12 -in [new p12 key file] -out [new pem file]
    • openssl x509 -text -in [new pem file]
    • (command above will show some text, copy the certificate portion and paste to a new certificate file)
  2. [Optional] Convert the certificate to run without password
    • openssl rsa -in [new pem file] -out [no password pem file]
    • openssl x509 -text -in [no password pem file]
    • (same as step 1, copy the certificate portion and paste to a new certificate file)
  3. Edit httpd.conf:
    • uncomment “Inlucde conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf”
    • enable mod_ssl
    • enable mod_socache_shmcb
  4. Edit httpd-ssl.conf:
    • SSLCertificateFile [certificate file location]
    • SSLCertificateKeyFile [pem file location]
    • add JkMount /[SSL Web] balancer
