Renew SSL Certificate


Our example uses a self-signed certificate. To renew the certificate for 365 days (for apache1 or apache2):



  # cd /etc/apache2/ssl
  # openssl genrsa -out togaware.com.key 1024
  # chmod 600 togaware.com.key
  # openssl req -new -key togaware.com.key -out togaware.com.csr

  # openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in togaware.com.csr \
            -signkey togaware.com.key -out togaware.com.crt
  # mv apache.pem apache.pem.old
  # cp togaware.com.key apache.pem 
  # cat togaware.com.crt >> apache.pem 
  # chmod 600 apache.pem
  # wajig restart apache2
