SSL Setup Issue

When I input a signed ssl certificate (positiveSSL) I get the message: “Failed to install certificate : Missing or invalid signed SSL certificate : Data does not start with line -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----” However, it 100% starts with ----Begin Certificate----. What is going on?

Linux usually is case sensitive, so BEGIN != Begin.

If “PossitiveSSL” generates certificates for you that have “Begin Certificate” in the header line, you should fix that manually, and then drop them a note that they should fix their odd generation process.

My certificate begins with:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

And virtualmin displays the error: Failed to install certificate : Missing or invalid signed SSL certificate : Data does not start with line -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----.

Is there anyway around this? I’ve tried it several times now – with new CSR’s, delete/re-add virtual server, ect. Nothing is working. I can give access.

Howdy,

Another fellow ran into that recently… check out the solution he mentions at the end of this thread here:

Thanks, I’ll give that a try! I bet that’s probably the culprit because everything else is right…I’ll update this post once I get the new cert in ~30 minutes.
