    Hi. One of my websites hosted on a shared cPanel server have an SSL Certificate.

    I was able to find www.mydomain.com.crt and www.mydomain.com.key in the /home folder of the cPanel account.

    How can I install this on my CentMinMod VPS now?

    I have already moved all my sites files onto the VPS, just need to get the SSL up and running.

    a paid SSL certificate ? if so you still need to follow instructions at Nginx HTTPS / SSL Google SPDY configuration to convert and concat the SSL cert, root and intermediate certificates into Nginx specific files for Nginx to read

    you'd need to get them from your paid SSL certificate provider

    I ended up buying a Wildcard alpha SSL.

    I have the following files now

    domain.com.crt intermediate_domain.com_ca.crt star_domain_com.csr star_domaincom.key

    I created bundle.crt from doing

    cat domain.com.crt intermediate_domain.com_ca.crt > bundle.crt

    Edit: Got everything installed and working now
