What server type is DH for SSL?


#1

I’m about to purchase a SSL cert over at FreeSSL.com, and is has instructions for creating a CSR… but they differ depending on the type of server it will be used on. Which leads to the question, “What is the Server Model DH is using for their implementation of SSL?” The list provided by FreeSSL.com follows, and it would be my guess that it is some Apache flavor, but which one? They list SIX different ones.

Any one know? Thanks!

After some more digging I found a reference in the DH Kbase that indicates the preferred server type for the CSR is “Apache MODSSL” though apparently “ApacheSSL” will also work.

Article is here for those interested.
