I'm reinstalling my ssl certs after a server move and I went to this link:

/scripts2/sslmanager

And tabbed out the remove links to remove my ssl certificates. On accident, I removed two labeled something like ca-bundle.crt. Was that important? Did that belong to a domain or does the server need that?

Hello :)

The CA Bundle is the file that contains the root and intermediate certificates. This will ensure the browser detects a specific certificate as trusted in most cases. You can consult with your SSL issuer to determine the CA Bundle associated with your certificate.

Thank you.

I'm redoing my paid-for certificates and wanted to remove them all from the server. If that was my goal did I do the right thing? Or did I remove some kind of default self-signed ssl cert that's necessary?

The CA Bundles are not required on self-signed certificates so you will not have to restore them.

Thank you.
