Hi! I usually self-host a website, so I have SSL certs from Let’s Encrypt already. I’m having a pile of problems so I was going to use Netlify. I see the ‘import cert’ options, but I’m confused about how to properly import my certs. Here’s the question in a bit more detail:
Netlify is asking for three things: PEM formatted certs, a private key, and a CA cert chain. I see these files on my machine, but there’s 3 for each one (e.g.
cert3.pem). Am I supposed to paste in the output at all? Pasting a private key in plaintext seems scary. Also, how am I supposed to paste it in, if that is indeed what I’m supposed to do? Take the content of all three and copy-paste it in? Do I leave in the
BEGIN MESSAGE header (and also the footer)?
