Can I use a SSL certificate with Openfire AND Apache at the same time?

Hello everybody.

We are currently planning to get a SSL certificate for openfire and for our page that is also enabled to connect to openfire.

I’d like to know if it’s even possible using the same certificate in openfire and apache at the same time.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can use the same cert for both applications - You will either have to include all the relavent hostnames in the CSR when you request the certificate, or make sure you access both services using the same hostname.

Thank you. Should be no problem if we have a wildcard cert…right? The domain stays the same for all of our hosted components.

It’s indeed no problem to use a certificate in many different servers. There may still be a security concern.
