[LON-CAPA-admin] local auth

Recently - the day before Thanksgiving - the certificate for our local auth 
expires. After getting the new certificate, it was quite a fiddle to get it 
to work and this brings my questions. What are the necessary steps required 
to update localauth.pm? From my experiments, it seems to go something like 

1. Update the certificate at the library server.
2. Restart loncontrol
3. Restart httpd (may not be necessary)

The problem was I started by updating the certificate on an access server 
and no matter what I did, I could not get it to work. It seems it is not 
necessary the cert on the access server. Am I right? If so, then 
localauth.pm is not used by the access server??
