To backup your Private Key and certificate in IPlanet 6.0


1. Launch Windows Explorer
2. Locate your Web site's Alias directory. By default, this directory may be found in c:\iPlanet\Servers.
3. Select and copy the relevant .db files for your Web Server. These files will have a naming convention that includes the alias that was
defined when creating the key pair. Be sure to copy both the -cert7.db, and the -key3.db files.

You have successfully backed up your Web Server's private-key and certificate.

In the event of a disaster recovery, you may simply place these files back into the alias directory of your Web Server to recover your
private-key and certificate.
