After OHS SSL Certificate Renewal, Accessing the Application does not Show the New SSL Certificate (Doc ID 2185637.1)

Last updated on MAY 19, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle HTTP Server - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This is the following architecture:

Client ---------> OHS ----------------> OTD ------------------> Weblogic

After renewing the SSL certificates for both OTD and OHS, when the application is accessed, it shows the old certificates instead of the renewed one.


 1. Generated the .p12 and .key file from OTD using open ssl for URL says
Command: <OTD_HOME>/bin/pk12util -o wallet.p12 -d sql:/u02/test -n <Certificate_Name / "name of the certificate to extract from the database">

Extract Private Key
openssl pkcs12 -in wallet.p12 -out private.key -nocerts -nodes

2. Transfered the private.key file to OHS server. Also copied the renewed cert files and root-intermediate files.

3. Then ran:

openssl pkcs12 -export -out ewallet.p12 -inkey private.key -in <Server_Certificate>.txt -certfile <Trust_Certificates/Trust_Chain>.txt

which generated the new ewallet.p12 file

4. Created the auto login wallet ( cwallet.sso) for this new wallet
