    Default Certificate Expired

    So our certificate is expired for almost a year now...

    Can anybody tell me how do I fix that...
    is there anything I should i know before installing a new one
    or things I might need before i install it

    is it as easy as going to the wizard...?

    thanks
    You guys are great help

    That depends on what you've got already, go to the Admin UI and look. You can also generate a new self-signed certificate from there.

    While Zimbra recommends the admin GUI, I have not been able to get this right. I just use the command line. I don't know who your CA provider is but Zimbra plays by different rules when it comes to this. I found this link very helpful

    5.x Commercial Certificates Guide - Zimbra :: Wiki
    NOTE: This is tailored to Version 5 but it worked in Version 6

    If you decide to use the GUI, one problem you may observe is that after applying the certificate, Zimbra fails when starting the mail box. This URL is not directly related but it fixed my broken certificate allowing other things to work right.
    ZCS Network Install: Was working, now possibly broken due to SSL?

    Good Luck
