Step by Step Wiki/KB article to install a RapidSSL Commercial Certificate


When you buy a GeoTrust (RapidSSL)SSL certificate, Geotrust will send to you some Root Certificate and RapidSSL intermediate CA certificate, in case that you miss some of them, here are the links:

Preparing the commercial_ca.crt

Certificates were assembled as follows:

cat [RapidSSL intermediate CA] [GeoTrust Global CA] > commercial_ca.crt 

You will be able to successfully verify the certificate using the following:

/opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr verifycrt comm /opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/commercial/commercial.key mail-cert ./commercial_ca.crt

Where 'mail-cert' is the certificate that was issued to the server based on the CSR, and "commercial_ca.crt" is the bundle assembled from the RapidSSL intermediate CA certificate and the link above.

Deploy the new SSL RapidSSL certificate

Then deploy the certificate as follows:

/opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr deploycrt comm  mail-cert ./commercial_ca.crt

Then you need to restart the services

zmcontrol restart
