My ignorance is probably to blame here, but I can not seem to get my GeoTrust signed SSL cert to work with Openfire 3.4.4 . I have two files in my possesion, one that is topped with ‘–
-BEGIN CERTIFICATE -’ and the other with ‘ -BEGIN PRIVATE KEY—’. (I got this cert from my web hoster).
So, if I import this cert via the admin console, Openfire takes it, but then firefox can’t connect to the console complaining about corrupt cert or no supported algorithms found. Hmmmm.
So then I try the manual keytool method and get tracebacks.
When I try to import the private key and cert via the console, I get tracebacks
at org.jivesoftware.util.CertificateManager.installCert(CertificateManager.java:50 1)
The key and cert work as expected with Apache. I must be missing some step.
(Looking my post last year about this problem, I see I was able to do a hack with keytool, but this never resulted in a cert that openfire thought was valid).
