PositiveSSL certificate keeps giving the untrusted issuer warnings in browser

Since I’m working on a Facebook app, the self-signed certificate I
created for SSL access to my admin area is no longer useful.

I grabbed a PositiveSSL cert from Comodo, but after following the
instructions here ( http://kbeezie.com/view/free-ssl-with-nginx/2/ ) but
still get the untrusted or self-signed warnings.

This page
(http://www.digicert.com/ssl-certificate-installation-nginx.htm) seems
to suggest I have to concatenate several crt files together.

This is what Comodo sent me:

AddTrustExternalCARoot.crt
PositiveSSLCA.crt
UTNAddTrustServerCA.crt and
www_example_com.crt

Do I need to concatenate all of these?

Also, just curious why do some example sites I’ve seen say Ngix needs a
pem file and others say a crt?

Thanks!

Upon further testing I see that it’s still using the old cert despite
issuing a kill -HUP.

How do I get nginx to start using the new cert?

Sigh…okay, never mind. Seems I had one typo in the conf change so the
kill -HUP was still using the old conf. So it’s working okay now.

Still curious why some examples use pem and others use crt.

Also any best usage additions I should add to the ssl section?

This is just a file extention. Both use the same PEM formay inside.
