Can anyone provide details and steps for adding an existing Wildcard SSL certificate to CWP.

Replay from my memory

domain.tld - domain for which *-certificate was generated. E.g.,
.key, .crt, .cert, .bundle - file extensions which CWP SSL vHost Manager recognize

so, this part of filename 'wcard.domain.tld' should be the same for all 3 files - key, cert, intermediate cert

using shell and/or 'scp' command/utility do following:

- put wcard.domain.tld.key in /etc/pki/tls/private
- put wcard.domain.tld.crt in /etc/pki/tls/certs
- create symlink wcard.domain.tld.cert -> wcard.domain.tld.crt (was required for CWP SSL vHost Manager, may be not needed in newer versions of CWP)
- put intermediate certificate as wcard.domain.tld.bundle in /etc/pki/tls/certs

Run CWP SSL vHost Manager (CWP.Admin->Apache Settings -> SSL vHost Manager), then find your *-cert in drop-down list. Select it - cert propeties should be displayed without errors. Select user. Generate vHost file. CWP will add '*' in path to files, so you should edit them accordingly later
