Hi Bert,

in Apache, you have several options like SSLCertificateFile,
SSLCertificateKeyFile, SSLCertificateChainFile, SSLCACertificatePath,
SSLCARevocationFile. They can contain any path, like

SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/myssl/cert-longnumber.pem
SSLCertificateChainFile /etc/apache2/myssl/cert_chain.txt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache2/myssl/mykey_without_password.pem

If you have certificates from Let's Encrypt, just give the paths to
/etc/certbot/live/ accordingly, like

SSLCertificateFile /etc/certbot/live/<hostname>/fullchain.pem
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/certbot/live/<hostname>/privkey.pem

the other options aren't used in this case.

The options' description can be found in

To use them, you must include the mod_ssl (command "a2enmod ssl") in the

HTH, Werner
