Continuing with the Apache HTTPD load balancer example, after configuring the Apache HTTPD server, configure HTTPD to use SSL certificates.

Note

This example describes using Apache HTTPD as your load balancer. Other load balancers will be configured differently.

Verify that you have the custom certificates.

1

In a text editor, locate and open conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf.

2

Type the location of your SSL server certificate.

SSLCertificateFile "C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/conf/certs/server.crt"

3

Type the SSL server private key for your custom load balancer certificate.

SSLCertificateKeyFile "C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/conf/certs/server.key"

4

Type the file that contains the entire certificate chain (or if you have only the leaf and root, you can provide the CA).

SSLCertificateChainFile "C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/conf/certs/ca/cacert.pem"

5

To ensure that clients can authenticate to the server, type the following directive.

SSLVerifyClient none

6

Restart the Apache server.

Update the LookUp Service records.
