Renewing an SSL Cert

    I'm having trouble getting a renewed cert installed.

    Running Plesk 7.0.3 for Windows

    This is what I did.

    1. Logged into Plesk, clicked Add New Certificate, generated a request
    2. Sent request to client, he renewed the cert through Thawte
    3. I logged into Thawte, fetched cert
    4. Went into Plesk, clicked on cert, but all the buttons for uploading cert text is grayed out.
    5. Went into IP and switched IP to default cert
    6. Went into certs and removed current cert
    7. Plesk still will not let me upload the cert text.
    8. I also tried uploading the crt file from the main Certificates screen but it could not find the appropriate private key.

    Did you ever solve this issue? I am running into the same thing... I rebooted Apache as well (After replacing the old cert with the new one).

    you can create new sertificate in Plesk and use PK from old certificate

    this doesn't work for me, because the PK of standard certificate is generated to the domain 'plesk' (yes, without an Top-Level-Domain).

    Now, by generating a new certificate I had to fill in the domain-name. But Plesk errors me this missmatch 'plesk'.

    If I'm using an other domain-name, the PK isn't compatible to it.

    I don't know how to solve.
