I have a 3rd Party Cert from a trusted authority that no longer shows up in Server App however the cert still works and is installed. I can to the wiki, click on show certificate and it displays the correct certificate. Everything else using this cert works as well.


Open server app, Click on the server name below hardware and click on settings. SSL Cert shows Not Configured and if you click edit it no longer shows up in the list.


Does anyone know how I can get it to show back up without reinstalling it?

    it's in /etc/certificates


    you can import it back into the Server app.


    when you import, you will need the passphrase. You will find this in the System keychain.

    when you look in /etc/certificates, you will see a string of characters in the file name. Search in keychain for that string, then choose to show the passord.

    thats what you'll need when you import the cert/key back to Server app.


    I can post more specific instructions later..but maybe thats enough for you?
