Updated guide on SSL key installation


1- Could someone please show me an updated guide on creating private key and CSR an then installation of the obtained key on open fire?

2- I also want to know whether I should buy a wildcard certificate?

3- Is it possible to use that same key I buy for an Nginx domain too?


XMPP uses multiple subdomains (like muc.server.tld, pubsub.server.tld,…), so a wildcard certificate might make sense if you are not sure, which subdomains are used.

In theory it should be possible to use your nginx certificate, if it covers the domains used by xmpp too.

I hope this resource will help you : Wildcard SSL Certificate into Openfire


Thanks. The key worked fine on Nginx too and I did not need much other than the web interface…
