Certificate Installation: FileZilla Server


Warning: Please be aware that Filezilla Server will not see more than *TWO* Intermediates. If you're unsure how many intermediates you have, then please consult our document: Which is Root? Which is Intermediate?

  1. Be sure to generate your private key and CSR with OpenSSL
    Note: Instructions on how to generate them can be found here.

  2. Be sure to have: yourDomain.crt, yourDomain.ca-bundle, and yourDomain.key in the same directory/folder.

  3. Open up a command prompt and run the following command inside the location above.

    Windows: copy yourDomain.key + yourDomain.crt + yourDomain.ca-bundle yourDomain_FZ.crt
    Linux: cat yourDomain.key + yourDomain.crt + yourDomain.ca-bundle > yourDomain_FZ.crt

    Note: If you did not receive a .ca-bundle click here on how to create one.

  4. You should have a file that now looks like this if it was opened in a text editor.

    Ex:
    -----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
    $SOME TEXT
    -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
    -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
    $SOME TEXT
    -----END CERTIFICATE-----
    -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
    $SOME TEXT
    -----END CERTIFICATE-----
    -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
    $SOME TEXT
    -----END CERTIFICATE-----

  5. Open the FileZilla Server Options window to the SSL/TLS settings area and reference the newly created file in both the Private Key and Certificate area.

    Edit -> Settings



  6. Click OK to save and continue.

  7. Stop and Start the FileZilla Server.

  8. SSL should now be enabled for your server.
