[How-TO] apache2 SSL ubuntu 14.04
How To Create a SSL Certificate

Enable SSL on you server

1: enable apache2 ssl
sudo a2enmod ssl
sudo service apache2 restart
Setup ssl on you server
2: make a folder to the crt and key files
sudo mkdir /var/sentora/hostdata/username/ssl
change name with your username
3: Create a Self Signed SSL Certificate
sudo openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout /var/sentora/hostdata/username/ssl/domain.tld.key -out /var/sentora/hostdata/username/ssl/domain.tld.crt
Generating a 2048 bit RSA private key
writing new private key to '/var/sentora/hostdata/username/ssl/domain.tld.key'
You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
into your certificate request.
What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
For some fields there will be a default value,
If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.
follow this -->
Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:US
State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:New York
Locality Name (eg, city) []:NYC
Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:Name of company
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) []: just press enter
Common Name (e.g. server FQDN or YOUR name) []: website name
Email Address []:Email

4: Enable Port 443

nano /etc/sentora/configs/apache/httpd.conf
just before
# Now we include the generic VHOST configuration file that holds all Sentora user hosted vhost data
Include /etc/sentora/configs/apache/httpd-vhosts.conf

<IfModule ssl_module>
       Listen 443
and reset apache2
sudo service apache2 restart

Setup SSL to website

5: Now log on to you sentora panel and go to
Module Admin --> Apache Config --> Override a Virtual Host Setting
and select domain

6: under Custom Entry:

<virtualhost *:443>
ServerName Domain.tld
