F5 Big-IP


Install your Trustwave® SSL certificate

When your certificate is issued, you will receive a ZIP file via e-mail. You will need just the .cer file from that ZIP. The .cer file contains your actual certificate.

You will need to the file to the Big-IP. We recommend using FTP since it is generally the easiest method. Save your .cer file that you received via e-mail in the /config/bigconfig/ssl.crt/ folder as www.yourdomain.com.crt. The Big-IP requires certificates to end in .crt in order to function properly.

Completing the installation

To install the new certificates, simply disable and enable the proxy:

# bigpipe proxy xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:443 disable 
# bigpipe proxy xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:443 enable
