FZS can confuse the user when generating certificates :

When you generate your own private key and certificate and simply put a file name in the "Save key and Certificate to this file box" - after FZS has successfuly generated the certificate in its program folder - it then also only puts the name in the certificate field in the SSL/TLS section and when you confirm FZS' suggestion (no error message at this point) you will later get "Could not load certificate file" errors in the FZS log when someone tries to connect via FTPS, because FZS cannot find the file without the path.

Workaround: You need to put the FULL PATH to the certificate file in both certificate fields and you will be fine.

Suggestion: Please make FZS put the path to the file in the "Private key file" and "Certificate file" fields after the keys have been generated, even if no specific path during generation has been given OR change the wording in the fields, so that the user will know that he has to enter the full path.

Regards,

Brahman

P.S. I made some changes to the Wiki article to alert users to this issue.

Does the private key and certificate key need to be in the 2 separate files or should they be in a single file together?

Currently I have them in a single file together but I didn't know how secure (or unsecure) it is to leave it that way.

Security of data in transit over the Internet becomes increasingly necessary because of steadily growing data volume and importance. Nowadays, every user of a public network sends various types of data, from email to credit card details daily, and he would therefore like them to be protected when in transit over a public network. To this end, a practical SSL protocol has been adopted for protection of data in transit that encompasses all network services that use TCP/IP to support typical application tasks of communication between servers and clients.To avoid the malfunctions on internet the ssl is needed. We can buy the ssl certificate from http://www.tucktail.com/

If this changes into an advertising thread I will close it. Keep it low.
