Install SSL certificate

    I have purchased a certificate but can't install it because all the buttons in the Plesk 'Certificates' page are disabled.

    I clicked 'Add', completed the form, then clicked 'Request' to generate a CSR, and used this to purchase a certificate. So far so good.

    According to instructions at
    http://download1.sw-soft.com/Plesk/...al/ch03s35.html : "You will be able to add the other certificate parts later on." but no can do.

    Now when I go back to to that domain's certificate everything's disabled except the certificate name change 'Set' button.

    I have 10 domains on one shared IP address but only one domain will have a certificate.

    The certificate is from Comodo but although they have instructions for Plesk these are not clear and appear to be for Linux versions. When I asked about Plesk on Windows they sent a link to instructions on IIS
    http://www.instantssl.com/ssl-certi...?currency=USD&region=North America&country=gb

    But I'd rather use Plesk if possible.

    Another problem is that Comodo certificates are chained and most Plesk instructions don't mention how to install a root certificate.

    I've not used SSL before so my understanding is hazy which doesn't help. Any Ideas?

    Cheers, Julian

    I did have it working for a while on version 6.5 then it broke durng the upgrade to 7 and I didn't get around to fixing it.

    The certificate needed to be installed at the Server/Certificates level, not at the domain/Cetificate level, because the IP address is shared with other domains. I'm not sure if you can still do this with 7 - that may be my current problem.

    As far as Commodo certificates are concerned - I needed to paste 2 parts of the certificate into one box - although I can't remember which parts or which box as it's been a while.

    Hope this helps

    Cheers, Julian

    Thanks for the reply

    I tried installing at server level on exclusive ip but it doesnt like it. Everything still disabled. Maybe ill try again as i tried every which way but worth another go i guess.

    Regards
    Ashley

    What's the certificate authority? Is it also Commodo?
