The steps outlined below will assist you in installing an SSL certificate on a ORACLE HTTP SERVER (OHS) server. Keep in mind that if you have multiple servers or devices that require security, you will need to repeat the installation process on each one. If you have not yet generated your certificate and finished the validation process, refer to our CSR Generation Instructions
before proceeding with the instructions below.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR ORACLE HTTP SERVER (OHS):
Step 1: Obtain an SSL certificate
- Obtain an SSL certificate from a trusted certificate authority (CA) such as DigiCert, GlobalSign, or Comodo.
Step 2: Install the Oracle Wallet Manager
- Download and install the Oracle Wallet Manager (OWM) from the Oracle website.
- Open the OWM and create a new wallet.
Step 3: Import the SSL certificate and private key
- In the OWM, select the "Import" option.
- Select the SSL certificate file and the private key file.
- Enter a password for the wallet and click "OK"
Step 4: Configure Oracle HTTP Server
- Open the Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) configuration file (httpd.conf)
- Add the following lines to the file, replacing the path and file names with the location of your wallet and SSL certificate.
LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so
Step 5: Restart the Oracle HTTP Server
- Restart the OHS service to apply the changes.
- Verify the SSL certificate is installed correctly by visiting the website through https:// and checking that it displays the padlock icon, and that the certificate is issued by a trusted CA.
