II. Implementation Guide
Step 1: Prepare SSL Certificate
After you have been granted a certificate from Goget, you need to check if the files are complete as below. If it is complete, you can install SSL.
- Certificate: *.crt
- Private Key: *.key
- CACertificate *.crt
Step 2: Install the certificate to CWP
In this SSL installation, you can install it through both the root user and the child user on CWP. Because in VPS, the root is the user with the highest authority, it can perform operations directly on behalf of child users. I will give specific instructions to both users.
To access the root user interface, follow the link: https://126.96.36.199:2087/ (remember to change your IP) and use the VPS root information to log in.
At the Root admin interface, you access WebServer Settings => SSL Certificates.
At the next interface, select Manual Install (1) => User (2) (select the User containing the domain to be installed) => Domain (3) (select the domain to be installed). In (4), you fill in the certificates corresponding to the files in Step 1 => click Save.
After filling in the certificate information, click on the List Installed tab (1) => (2) to see if the certificate has been updated. As shown below, the GoGet certificate has been updated successfully.
To access Child User’s interface, follow the link: https://188.8.131.52:2083/ (remember to change your IP) and use your user information to log in.
At the User interface, you access Domains => Custom SSL => Install SSL.
Next, enter the certificate corresponding to the files in Step 1 => click Install certificate
If you receive a message as shown below, you have completed SSL installation => click Continue to complete the installation step.
So we have completed the steps to install SSL on the website using CWP through the root user and the child user.
