I manage to install apache2 in my ubuntu 12.04 vps. Now my question is how is it really going to install ssl cert to make my site https:// ?

I already followed this tutorial from Digital Ocean, but I failed. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-create-a-ssl-certificate-on-apache-for-ubuntu-12-04

I also tried this one, but still I failed. https://support.comodo.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=1203&nav=0,96,1,95

I already have my 90-day free trial ssl cert from instantssl. Here's what I have: .ca-bundle and .crt from instantssl. And I already do have my .csr and .key using this command.

openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -out www_gremdev_com.csr -keyout www_gremdev_com.key -subj "/C=PH/ST=Misamis Oriental/L=Cagayan de Oro/O=GremDev Ltd/OU=IT/CN=www.gremdev.com"
