Renewed SSL certificate does not show up with Apache
Tagged:  •  

I installed a renewed SSL certificate on a webserver (Apache 1.3), replacing the old certificate with the newer one. However, when one checks the SSL page in the internet browser, the data of the old certificate may be seen. This is a known issue with Apache. But restarting the webserver did not work out. But it turned out that I didn't start the server with SSL support. These are the commands which should be issued after replacing a certificate:

apachectl stop && apachectl startssl

And after this command the new certificate was shown in the browser.
