SSL for DA and Squirrelmail?

    I know that my last reseller host had SSL enabled for the DA login. I'm not sure how secure that made it, but it made me feel a little better.


    Is there a way that I can enable SSL for my DA Control Panel as well as the Squirrelmail login?

    I have a Mtx VPS. On that, I have set up a single reseller account which controls all of my domains.

    Any advice or guidance is greatly appreciated.

    SSH in.

    1. openssl req -new -x509 -keyout /usr/local/directadmin/conf/cakey.pem.tmp -out /usr/local/directadmin/conf/cacert.pem
    2. openssl rsa -in /usr/local/directadmin/conf/cakey.pem.tmp -out /usr/local/directadmin/conf/cakey.pem
    3. rm /usr/local/directadmin/conf/cakey.pem.tmp
    4. chown diradmin:diradmin /usr/local/directadmin/conf/cakey.pem
    5. chmod 400 /usr/local/directadmin/conf/cakey.pem
    6. Set SSL=1 in /usr/local/directadmin/conf/directadmin.conf
    7. Restart VPS

    I'm going to have to give this a shot when I get a little braver... :)
