Add HTTPS to Amazon AWS Loadbalancer

First, I tried uploading the certificate using the AWS command line tools like so:

iam-servercertupload -b MyCert.crt -k MyCert.key -s TESTKEY -c CA_Bundle.pem

CA_Bundle.pem is the chain key provided by Certificate Issuer.

Find the name of uploaded certify:

CERT=`iam-servercertlistbypath`

add new listener to existed LoadBalancer:

elb-create-lb-listeners my-load-balancer --listener "protocol=https, lb-port=443, instance-port=8080, cert-id=$CERT" --region eu-west-1

Make sure your instances accept HTTP connections on port 8080 (add port to apache conf).

Thanks for the info this helped me. To figure out the cert id run the following command. myCertName is the value of parameter -s

iam-servercertgetattributes -s TESTKEY --aws-credential-file /path/to/CREDITIALFILE
