+link:#free-certificates[signed certificate] (or
+link:#self_sign[signed your own]). Ensure that the certificate files
+have the appropriate permissions for your OS and that you know the locations
+of the following:
+ . Signed Certificate file
+ . Private Key file used to generate CSR for the above
+ . CA List or Chain file (Optional, depending on signing authority of your certificate)
+All files should be generated using PEM-encoding.
+Certificates are configured at the vServer level in the *Security* tab. *This
+means you must have a vServer setup that corresponds to your Certificate's
+security scope*. Enter the full paths for your Certificate and corresponding Private
+Key file. To add a certificate chain file to you CA List set *Client Certs. Request*
+to _Accept_ then put the full path to your chain file in the _CA List_ box.
