(Part 2) // Installing a SSL Certificate and don’t die while is trying to do it.

Okay, after receive some emails from the web hosting provider inmotionhosting.com, Today early, finally I have received the info with the RSA key…,
I will hide some train of chars by security reasons, the email looks like this:

Sin título-1

Usually you must think that the next step is more complex, wrong idea (in this case), …

The next step is only to open your panel (where you have bought the SSL certificate) and follow the next instructions:

I know, I know, may be you can say something like: why you don’t explain everything here, under this post?, okay, the first answer is because the info “already exist”… in the link, only, you will need to re-use a link, and the second one reason is because is a little bit tired for me to think and write in english hehe … Usually I do one thing with 2 goals in mind.

Then, after you have read the link before posted, you will need to wait a little bit more, like me, I am just right now waiting for the last message of confirmation of my hosting provider to complete the last step made.

After this point, I will need to activate the SSL authentication mode inside of the CMS installed under http://www.nicaraguaspanishschools.org

And… I will place the last part of this testing of installing a SSL certificate, please check the next and last part of this small tutorial: “Latest steps with the SSL certificate Installation and Activating it under a CMS…”

Installing a SSL Certificate and don’t die while is trying to do it.

Well, this is my first post… Today, I am trying to install a SSL certificate in the domain name http://www.nicaraguaspanishschools.org

Okay, while I was reading and reading on Internet, I have found a place where I can bought a cheap certificate for my first test, this site that I have found is http://www.namecheap.com, I have bought a $9 usd basic certificate but will help me with the task.

Before it, I have hosted the site installation of http://www.nicaraguaspanishschools.org in the servers of inmotionhosting.com, but the domain name is hosted with another provider of domain names (( that is not important for this article)), (( I can offer info of how to complete a domain pointing the next time))

Okay, when I have finished the shopping of the SSL certificate, I have found that I will need a CSR code and a backup of my RSA key from my hosting provider, in this case is inmotionhosting.com.

These guys from India ((the live chat assistants)) in inmotionhosting.com are very friendly, they provide me the information required to get my CSR code and RSA key.

As I am using this hosting provider, this task has had a $0 usd cost, I have had that to enter to the control panel and press a buttom of “request CSR code” after some few clicks I have received my CSR code and my backup of RSA key in our email ((the administrative email)).

If I remember, a RSA key is used during the establishment of communication between servers and clients with a protocol SSH, I wish to offer a diagram of how this architecture works (( I am thinking )).

Okay, I am done with the Info that I need to start with my installing of a SSL certificate in the domain name, and in the next post I will explain with some screens how I have made the complete installation…
