Certificate Installation: Direct Admin


Installing a certificate using Direct Admin


There are a few files you need to edit in order to install the certificate for Direct Admin.


You need to paste the certificate file in the cacert.pem file located at

certificate: /usr/local/directadmin/conf/cacert.pem


You need to paste the key  file in the cacert.pem file located at 

key: /usr/local/directadmin/conf/cakey.pem


Edit the /usr/local/directadmin/conf/directadmin.conf and set SSL=1 (default is 0). This tells DA to load the certificate and key and to use an SSL connection. DirectAdmin needs to be restarted after this change.


also for the Ca_Bundle file we provide you in the email, this can be specified by adding:


into the /usr/local/directadmin/conf/directadmin.conf file (won't exist by default) and by pasting the contents of the ca_bundle cert into that file.
