I am moving from self-signed certificates to a signed certificate. I am using namecheap and positive SSL.
There are options for Apache + OpenSSL and Apache + mod SSL.
It was my impression that mod SSL just used the OpenSSL functionality.
I plan to generate the keys/certs using something similar to:
touch smtpd.key chmod 600 smtpd.key openssl genrsa 2048 > smtpd.key openssl req -new -key smtpd.key -x509 -days 365 -out smtpd.crt # has prompts openssl req -new -x509 -extensions v3_ca -keyout cakey.pem -out cacert.pem -days 365
and placing them in the appropriate places.
Which option should I choose to complete the process? I am using openssl to create the certificate, but mod ssl is enabled in the apache server. Or am I correct in assuming these two options do the exact same thing.
