To enable ssl in a website, follow these steps:
1) Enable the ssl checkbox in the website settings.
2) Selected the IP address and not * in the website settings.
3) Create a ssl certificate on the ssl tab by entering the details for the ssl cert into the fields and select create as action. Then click on save and wait a few minutes so that the ssl cert gets created. Do not use any special characters in the ssl cert details as this might cause the certificate creation to fail.
