    Hi,

    I found there are two ways to add SSL cert in Plesk 10.3.1 Linux:

    1. Websites & Domains -> Secure Your Sites -> Add SSL Cert
    2. Server -> Tools & Utilities -> SSL Certs -> Add SSL Cert

    What is the difference between them?
    If I want to install a cert for mail server, which way should I go?

    Thanks,

    Raymond

    Thanks for the information.

    But when I order the SSL cert from other vendor, I need to generate the CSR, which path should I go?

    1. Websites & Domains -> Secure Your Sites -> Add SSL Cert
    2. Server -> Tools & Utilities -> SSL Certs -> Add SSL Cert

    I just don't understand what is the difference between these two paths...

    Thanks!!

    Hey RaymondN,

    If you trying to secure mail. I would go with the option 2. (Server -> Tools & Utilities...) because this certificate doesn't need to be tied to a specific domain. Just the main domain of the server.

    After you get the certificate, then you need to follow KB 1062
