Installing certificate from another server


#1

Usually I would simply generate my own certs with certbot however I have been asked to use existing certificates for a new website. I have been given files for this (cert.pem, chain.pem,fullchain.pem and privkey.pem) that were generated on a different server issued by LE. I can’t seem to find a way to install these certs without generating new ones which i cant do as the admin of the domain/previous site/server will not release the domain until certs are installed. Does anyone know of a method to do this that will not effect other certs I have on my server?

Thanks in advanced

My domain is:
brightservicessolutions.uk

My web server is (include version):
Apache 2

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
Ubuntu 18.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
Digital Ocean

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
YES

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
NO

Place those files in any folder and just point to them from your apache config.
