This is a quick hands-on guide for obtaining and installing a Class 1 server certificate in murmur on a reasonably modern Linux system.

wget --no-check-certificate https://www.startssl.com/certs/sub.class1.server.ca.pem
wget --no-check-certificate https://www.startssl.com/certs/ca.pem
openssl req -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout mumble.key -out server_mumble.csr \ 
-subj "/C=SE/ST=Stockholm/L=Stockholm/O=YourNameHere/OU=IT/CN=your.domain.here"

This will create server.mumble.csr.

After authenticating to the StartSSL website (assuming you've already added your domain to StartSSL and verified it), click "Certificates Wizard", select "Web Server SSL/TLS Certificate" from the Certificate Target dropdown box, and click "Continue".

Skip the key generation step because we've already generated a key using OpenSSL above. You will now have a text area that you can paste your CSR in, so paste the entire CSR in and click "Continue".

After the certificate is generated the contents should be placed in a new file, ssl_mumble.crt.

cat ca.pem >> ssl_mumble_concat.crt
cat sub.class1.server.ca.pem >> ssl_mumble_concat.crt
cat ssl_mumble.crt >> ssl_mumble_concat.crt

Now the file ssl_mumble_concat.crt contains the certificate, and mumble.key contains the key. Move the files into the same folder as murmur.ini and edit the following two lines:


Restart murmur and you're done.
