FMS 16 Wildcard Install

Hi all,

I have FMS 16 and have never used SSL before. I see other posts regarding this but couldn't find an answer to my specific problem.


I'm confused about the intermediate certificate and how, or if, I need to build a chain.pem file. I've attempted to follow Filemaker's instructions (Answer ID: 14176) to no avail. I bought a PositiveSSL Wildcard certificate that others have said works with FMS 16 and I've installed the cert on our website and it works fine.


I have these files:, a and a

I assume the p7b is the intermediate? I tried building a chain.pem file using the crt and p7b files but I get "failed to verify the signed certificate and intermediate certificates".


Any suggestions?

Thank you.
