SSL gd_bundle.crt??


Hi all,
Quick question, godaddy.com provides 2 CRT's when purchasing from them:

1. www.mydomain.com.crt
2. gd_bundle.crt

Whats the diff between the bundle and mydomain.com CRT's? I know that the www.mydomain.com.crt is configured on SSLCertificateFile and the bundle is configured on SSLCertificateChainFile.

Are both necessary? Can i use either or? Thanks in advance.

I've never needed to use SSLCertificateChainFile, but here's Apache's word on the matter:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod...icatechainfile

I think you know what a cert (SSLCertificateFile) is, so I'll spare you that one. If I'm wrong, it's documented in the same place. Your CA-signed cert is presented to client web browsers to more or less confirm that you are who you claim to be.
