What are those file newcert.cer and user.cert? How did you get it?

I'm assuming external CA means public CA such as verisin, godaddy etc

Cacert.pem -- You should get from the external CA who has singed it. e.g if is well known public CA , then you can also download from the browser as the browser has all the CA certs

cert.pem -- When you submit your cert request file, the external CA will give you a singed file, that is cert.pem

singing_key.pem -- You would have first generated the key, that is the signing key

openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout signing_key.pem -keyform PEM -out signing_cert_req.pem -outform PEM -config cert_req.conf -nodes

if you had executed the above command, then you would have got the signing_key.pem
