Problem: Unified SSL certificate error – SSL: error:0906D066:PEM routines:PEM_read_bio:bad end line

Cause:

The server had a unified file to hold the SSL certificate and intermediate certificate. But, on restarting the webserver, the above error showed up.
The ‘end of the line’ was indeed good. The problem was due to a missing line break between the certificates.

Solution:

Replace,
-----END CERTIFICATE----------BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
With,

—–END CERTIFICATE—–
—–BEGIN CERTIFICATE—–

Note that there should be 5 hyphens at the beginning and end, of the BEGIN/END tags!
