Install SSL certificates on Nginx

This article show how the SSL certificates purchased from Comodo can be deployed on a server running Nginx

You must have the server.key file (Private Key that was generated with the CSR code that used to activate/purchase the certificate.

You also have these two files, *.crt and *.ca-bundle, that must have been sent to you as a zip archive from Comodo. Combine these file into a chain file

cat mydomain.crt mydomain.ca-bundle >> chain.crt

Now copy this chain.crt file and the server.key file to the nginx server in a folder that is readable by Nginx.

Edit nginx.conf file, and add the following 4 lines

server {
listen 443;
ssl on;
ssl_certificate /etc/ssl/chain.crt;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/ssl/server.key;

.....
