I recently had to change the a ecommerce website for a client, and the new site is now on an EC2 instance that is running WAMP.

The client already has a GoDaddy SSL certificate, however, it is getting me really confusing how if I can use it as it is. I downloaded for Apache and it has two .crt files.

I don't have access for previously generated CSR or private key or pem file. Sorry am really new to this -> How to proceed?

FYI: I am following the steps as here: http://mrkeck.com/2012/07/14/ssl-on-wamp-server/

    Whoever bought the certificate has the private key, and must provide it to you. – Michael Hampton Oct 29 '15 at 16:38

    "How to proceed?" Stop using WAMP. That should be step #1. – EEAA Oct 29 '15 at 16:40

  • Micheal, I am following this tutorial: mrkeck.com/2012/07/14/ssl-on-wamp-server Do I need to ask for the .pem file as well? – Santosh Achari Oct 29 '15 at 16:42
  • You need the private key file, the certificate file (in standard PEM format) an the CA certificate to complete the certificate chain. Click the "Install Certificate" link on the instructions page you are using. It explains it all. Replace the Linux paths with Wndows paths. – Gmck Oct 29 '15 at 17:15
