How to Install the Primary Server Certificate File using Key Manager
Step 1 – To start with, download the Root, Intermediate & Primary certificate files from the customer account with your Certificate Authority (CA)
Step 2 – Next, go to 'Key Manager'
Step 3 – Click on the key in the 'www' directory (normally a broken key icon with a line) to install the new 'IIS Primary SSL Server' certificate. Next, select 'Install Key Certificate'
Step 4 – Enter your password
Step 5 – Add the IP and the Port Number on being prompted. If you do not have any other IIS SSL certificates installed on the web server, 'Any Assigned' is acceptable.
Please Note: If multiple certificates are installed on the same web server, separate IP addresses will be required for each certificate (unless SNI is enabled) because SSL does not support host headers.
Step 6 – Select 'Commit Changes' from the Computers menu or select 'Yes' after closing the Key Manager, when prompted to commit changes
Step 7 – With this step, your new IIS Primary SSL Server certificate is installed successfully
Step 8 – It is very important for the users to back up the key in the 'Key Manager'. This can be performed by clicking on Menu > Export > Backup File
Note: Before your browsers automatically trust the SSL certificate, you must ensure the ‘Intermediate’ certificate is properly installed on the same server.
