Export SSL cert with private key?

Postby Rusty » Fri Feb 01, 2013 8:41 pm

I set up Wing FTP on a Windows box to use HTTPS. Now I'd like to move the server and publish it behind a proxy. This requires that the proxy has a copy of the certificate with private key. Can I export them somehow from the WingFTP box, ideally into PFX format? Here's what I have to work with:
- a copy of the cert from the Certificate Authority (-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE etc)
- a copy of the private key file (-----BEGIN ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY etc)
- a copy of the original CSR (-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE REQUEST etc)
- the password used on the "Create SSL certificate" screen during setup
Thanks.

You can generate the SSL certificate again like this: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=54

Perhaps I did not explain my situation well.

I already have a 3rd party certificate in use. I do not want to pay for a new cert, and doubt this would get me to my goal anyway. I need to be able to export (or convert) the existing private key + certificate into the PFX format required by my reverse proxy server. I appreciate any suggestions.
