    The default location for the SSL certificates, CSR etc is in /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt, /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.csr/server.csr

    OpenSSL-0.9.8d is installed as part of the IMAP server installation. Follow these instructions to generate your own, unique CSR, or you can simply use the one created when you installed the IMAP Server. I believe that Westhost use your account password as the passphrase, but I would check with tech support before accepting that as gospel.

    My understanding is that you can only have one certificate per VPS. If you want to access www.domain.com and admin.domain.com using SSL, then you need to install a wildcard certificate (more expensive). It is cheaper to have secure.domain.com/www and secure.domain.com/admin

    This restriction is a limitation of Apache, not Westhost.

    yes, and im only using one certificate for apache, the second is for the imap server, so i can use secure connections without the warning of a self-signed certificate

    I stand corrected.

    Try /usr/local/imap-server-1.0/openssl-0.9.8d/certs/imapd.pem
