27.5. Managing Certificates

Although the vast majority of activities you may need to perform with certificates under Mac OS X Server is encompassed in the instructions earlier in this chapter, you may need to carry out two potential management tasks from time to time: deleting certificates and importing certificates.

NOTE

As a reminder, after installing a certificate, you must turn on SSL support and select your preferred certificate for each service you want to encrypt. Find instructions for email in Chapter 28, for the web server in Chapter 30, and for several other services in Chapter 31.

To delete a certificate, follow these steps:

  1. Open Server Admin, which is located in /Applications/Server.

  2. In the sidebar on the left, select your server.

  3. If no services are listed under the server name, click the disclosure triangle next to the server name to reveal them.

  4. If the service names are dimmed, choose Server Connect, type your username and password if they're not already filled in, and then click Connect. The list of services refreshes, and those currently running appear with a green dot next to them.

  5. Click the Certificates button on the toolbar.

  6. Select a certificate, click the Remove (–) button, and then click Delete to confirm. Server Admin deletes the certificate immediately.

To import a certificate, follow these steps:

  1. Open Server Admin, which is located in /Applications/Server.
