SSL cert

Generate the private key
# openssl genrsa -out myserver.key 2048

then generate the Certificate signing request (CSR) from the private key
# openssl req -new -key myserver.key -out myserver.csr

This key will be given to SSL authority to sign the cert and will return back a .crt file
After you get it, put it into apache server and append this into the httpd.conf

    SSLEngine On
    SSLCertificateKeyFile myserver.key
    SSLCertificateFile myserver.crt
    SSLCACertificateFile RapidSSL_CA_bundle.pem
