ipa-server-certinstall - Install new SSL server certificates


ipa-server-certinstall [OPTION]... FILE...


Replace the current SSL Directory and/or Apache server certificate(s) with the certificate in the specified files. The files are accepted in PEM and DER certificate, PKCS#7 certificate chain, PKCS#8 and raw private key and PKCS#12 formats.

PKCS#12 is a file format used to safely transport SSL certificates and public/private keypairs.

They may be generated and managed using the NSS pk12util command or the OpenSSL pkcs12 command.

The service(s) are not automatically restarted. In order to use the newly installed certificate(s) you will need to manually restart the Directory and/or Apache servers.
