    They are stored in the mySQL 'psa' database in the 'certificates' table as blobs

    i'm asking this because yesterday i bought an instantSLL cert and following instruction on their website i created CSR from domain area and not from server area of my Plesk box.

    Creating and installing certificate from domain area you will be able to have a correct installation for https://domain.com but NOT for https://domain.com:8443 so i deleted cert from domain area and created a new CSR from server area but in this way Plesk generate CSR and private key together and then when you try to upload cert from Comodo and root cert, Plesk says that you have an incompatibility between Private Key and SLL cert. Fortunally i archived my first private key and CSR generated the first time for domain area, so i clicked on new certificate in server area, put same infos i put the first time (Company, address etc.) but NOT clicked on "generate CSR" i simply put my first Private Key, SSL cert and RootChain cert and click on send. Now everything work correctly for https://domain.com and https://domain.com:8443 i only missed CSR cert, i think i can live without it but because i have my first CSR i would like to insert in some way to have all 4 cert installed correctly but as you wrote me CSR is in MySQL and i'm warried to touch and destroy something important just for my maniacal attitude :)
