    How do I change the SSL certificate that Plesk uses on the administration port 8443?

    The way I've always done it is to edit the /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/httpsd.pem file and put in your certificate information. Note you have to have a valid certificate in order to do this. For instance, your file would look like this once you are done:

    your private key goes here
    -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----

    your certificate goes here
    -----END CERTIFICATE-----

    if you have or need it, the ca certificate goes here
    -----END CERTIFICATE-----

    Then run 'service psa stop', then 'service psa start'

    Then access by the domain name you have the certificate for instead of by IP. For instance, if the cert you installed was for www.domain.com, use:

    Actually you can do this from the control panel. Just browse to server>certificates, check the box next to the new certificate & click the "Setup" button at the top between "Remove Selected" & "Default".
