Istalling a RapidSSL Commercial SSL Certificate

Use the article as a guide to installing a GeoTrust / RapidSSL issued SSL certificate with the zmcertmgr tool.

1. You will receive an e-mail from RapidSSL with your commercial certificate. Locate the [Your RapidSSL certificate:] section within the e-mail and copy the Certificate including the -----BEGIN to END----- to a file server.crt and place this into /tmp/server.crt

2. Download the appropriate bundle file from http://www.geotrust.com/resources/root_certificates/certificates/Equifax_Secure_Certificate_Authority.cer . RapidSSL certificates are always signed by Equifax!! Save this as ca_bundle.crt

3. Deploy the commercial certificate with zmcertmgr as the root user.

 # cd /opt/zimbra/bin
 # ./zmcertmgr deploycrt comm /tmp/server.crt /tmp/ca_bundle.crt

Note: The solution above works for Zimbra 5/6
