Just keep your apache configuration file and the ssl certificate files. They should normally be in /etc/httpd or /etc/apache or sth similar.

Then put them back on the new server (after it has been installed)

Should work...

Ok, I 'am new at linux, and Im starting to learn, I do understan wht you are sayn, but I want to make sure Im right.
I check the folders files of /etc/httpd/conf/ and this is what I get:


access.conf httpd.conf.default mime.types ssl.crt
access.conf.default httpd.conf.post-chiliasp mime.types.default ssl.csr
hostname.conf httpdsaved.conf srm.conf ssl.key
httpd.conf magic srm.conf.default ssl.prm
httpd.conf.bak magic.default ssl.crl
vhosts


the ones that are in color orange, are the ones that I have to change to the new server?
thanks a lot!!

Thats right.

It's also best to keep the apache.conf and access.conf and move them to the new server as well. Otherwise you'll have to reconfigure the new webserver all over again:
For example, the apache.conf file tells the webserver where the SSL files are located, and where the web documents are etc. etc. So it will be better to keep it as well.
Access.conf is where passwords are kept for the "private" areas of the webserver, so it's best to also move this file to the new server.

Don't forget to restart the apache webserver after changing/adding the files!

Have fun
