Just a quick post with the most straight forward way to configure http webservers/proxies in regard to ssl certificate chains.

I’m open for improvements if it improves readability or reduces linecount. :-)

pound

In /etc/pound/pound.cfg you only need one line in the HTTPS listener:

ListenHTTPS
    Cert    "/etc/pound/file-with-key-and-cert-chain.pem"

apache2

SSLCertificateFile    /path/to/file-with-key-and-cert-chain.pem
SSLCertificateChainFile /path/to/file-with-key-and-cert-chain.pem
