need help with SSL installation


I am new to the Omeka platform and recently our site ( has been asking for a renewal of an SSL certificate.

I have installed SSL certs on Windows servers, but never on a linux server or the omeka platform.

I am wondering if anyone on the forums can assist in explaining the steps to install the certificate?

I’ve looked through the documentation and have not been able to find an answer. Our DNS and domain names are through godaddy, but the actual omeka server is on amazon web services.

Here are the details of what we are running:

Omeka 2.6.1
PHP 5.6.40 (cgi-fcgi)
OS Linux 2.6.32-042stab133.2 x86_64
MySQL Server 5.6.44
MySQL Client mysqlnd 5.0.11-dev – 20120503

Thanks much for any assistance!

There basically isn’t any Omeka-specific component to SSL cerificate maintenance, it’s something that’s configured through the web server (probably Apache). There’s just a configuration setting (look for SSLCertificateFile in Apache’s settings) for the path to the certificate(s) and keys; you can change the paths to point somewhere new, but it’s often simplest to just replace the appropriate files and restart/reload Apache.

thank you @jflatnes ! I will check this out ASAP.
