    We have a client moving off a non cpanel server onto our cpanel box. THey have a ssl cert and im trying to figure out how to transfer it. I went to geotrust (the place they got their cert) and got the following information on moving certs from 1 unix box to another.

    I have found the server.key and server.crt files. They where not where I had expected them to be (/etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt and /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key).

    My question is that they both are named server.key and server.crt. In a post that I found by search it said to call these files something like and

    Since the cert and key files on the old server are simply server.key and server.crt can they be renamed? If not how will WHM pick them up?

    I do have the CSR, RSA and CERT saved on my computer when I had to purchase these for the client the first time around. Can I use those on the new server? I saved them to a text file after getting burnt once with losing the CSR.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
