To install your SSL Certificate, perform the following steps:

1. Import the appropriate root certificates using:

$ keytool -import -trustcacerts -keystore mystore.kdb -alias root - file root.cer

"mystore.kdb" being your keystore.

2. Import the "yourdomain.cer" file using:

keytool -import -trustcacerts -keystore mystore.kdb -alias tomcat -file yourdomain.cer

With "mystore.kdb" being your keystore.

Update server.xml configuration file:

1. Open "$JAKARTA_HOME/conf/server.xml" in a text editor.

2. Find the following section:

- <!--
Define a SSL Coyote HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8443
<Connector className="org.apache.coyote.tomcat4.CoyoteConnector"
port="443" minProcessors="5" maxProcessors="75"
acceptCount="100" debug="0" scheme="https" secure="true"
useURIValidationHack="false" disableUploadTimeout="true">

3. If you want Tomcat to use the default SSL port, change all instances of the port number "8443" to 443.

4. Start or restart Tomcat
