Did you buy a wildcard SSL certificate; ie * as the world of SSL says the above two are different realms. Makes a difference as even if its SSL enabled your browser may still throw a warning as the site won't match the certificate. Worth checking.

These notes are specific to a/my Centos build. You will have to adapt as necessary.

- Sites > > web domain tab, enable SSL click save
- under SSL tab paste key and cert or paste bundle and save.
- wait for job to update config and look in /var/www/ where you will see and files
- copy your intermediate.crt file into same folder
- Go back to ispconfig control panel under sites > > options and in apache directives enter a line "SSLCertificateChainFile /var/www/" to match the filename you entered.
- Save and test

For ispconfig same principle but you may have to modify /etc/httpd/conf/sites-available/ispconfig.vhost yourself and enter SSLCertificateChainFile as a line in there manually. The ispconfig certs live in /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/ssl. Overwrite the .crt and .key files with yours and don't forget to copy the intermediate crt as well. Restart apache.
