SSL Certificate LocationsLast Modified: May 7, 2020, 1:10 pm
General information for default certificate locations for various services.
The order will be cert,key, ca/chain, combined (cert+ca)and their related directadmin.conf settings, where applicable.
  • Apache/LiteSpeed

    apachecert=/etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt
    apachekey=/etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key
    apacheca=/etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.ca

  • OpenLiteSpeed

    openlitespeed_cert=/usr/local/lsws/ssl.crt/server.crt
    openlitespeed_key=/usr/local/lsws/ssl.key/server.key
    openlitespeed_ca=/usr/local/lsws/ssl.crt/server.ca

  • Nginx

    nginx_cert=/etc/nginx/ssl.crt/server.crt
    nginx_key=/etc/nginx/ssl.key/server.key
    nginx_ca=/etc/nginx/ssl.crt/server.ca
    /etc/nginx/ssl.crt/server.crt.combined

  • Exim + Dovecot

    /etc/exim.cert
    /etc/exim.key

    Note that the exim.cert contains BOTH the cert and the ca, in that order.
  • User Domain

    /usr/local/directadmin/data/users/USER/domains/DOMAIN.COM.cert
    /usr/local/directadmin/data/users/USER/domains/DOMAIN.COM.key
    /usr/local/directadmin/data/users/USER/domains/DOMAIN.COM.ca
    /usr/local/directadmin/data/users/USER/domains/DOMAIN.COM.combined

DirectAdmin may automatically create the .combined version of the cert, when needed by various servers.
If you see one on disk beside the cert, put the cert + ca into the combined file, eg:

cat /etc/nginx/ssl.crt/server.crt /etc/nginx/ssl.crt/server.ca > /etc/nginx/ssl.crt/server.crt.combined
