Adding SSL Certificate into Kloxo-MR Control Panel for NGINX

Kloxo-MR is a branch of Kloxo that supports NGINX  to a small extent.  We add onto this compatibility with our own version focused on our VPS and Dedicated server configurations and supported software. This means that you can now add SSL certificates through Kloxo without having to understand NGINXconfigurations.

Below are a few screenshots of how to add a new certificate you have already purchased from a third party vendor.  Make sure you have the following files available from the SSL provider.

  • SSL Private Key
  • Certificate Bundle

Install Certificate

  • Find SSL Area
  • Paste in SSL Certificate
  • Assign SSL to IP
  • Assig SSL to domain

Hopefully this clarifies how to add an SSL certificate into Kloxo-MR. You will probably want to restart NGINX afterwards, here is how to do it in a safe manner. You will need to copy and paste the following commands into your Kloxo-MR command center.

  • Test Config
  • Restart NGINX

Test NGINX configuration before restarting. Make sure there are no errors before proceeding further.

/usr/sbin/nginx -t
Test NGINX configuration

Restart NGINX

service nginx restart
Restart NGINX

After restarting NGINX check that there aren’t certificate errors in your browser on https pages.  Then you can test the SSL certificateinstallation on your favorite Certificate testers here is a link to one we use frequently. SSL-Shopper
