Openfire SSL With Intermediate CA

I have delayed this for over a year and every day just clicking away the warning about the expired cert. Now I finally allocated some time to solve this issue. The Openfire Web interface doesn’t really tell you what to do and how to paste the certificate contents. First go to Server Settings -> Server Certificates -> Import

Paste your private key in the first field. In the certificate field paste your certificate first, followed by the intermediate certificate. The important part is: you must not have a line break after —–END CERTIFICATE—– or —–END RSA PRIVATE KEY—–

These lines must be the last line of the text box else the import will fail! This should save me some time in 2014 :)
