Default ISPConfig and SSL Certificates

Hi,

I'm really very new to SSL Certificates.
I found out on this forum that there is finally an instance that provides SSL Certificates for the right price ... Free ! (http://www.cacert.org/)

The thing is, I'm not really familiar with SSL Certs, so i signed up, added a domain to it but now I'm kind of stuck

Could someone help me with a nice and short description of how what and when with these certificates

Thanks a lot !

1) Enable SSL in your ISPConfig website and hit save.
2) Go to the new SSL tab in the website settings in ISPConfig, enter the certificate details and select create as action and click on the save button.
Now you will have to wait about a minute.
4) Go to the SSL tab again, now there is a certificate signing request in the one field, use this request to create a certificate a cacert.org.
5) enter the certificate code you got from cacaert.org in the certificate field on the ssl tab in ispconfig, select "save certificate" as action an click on the save button.

Ok makes sense, but in terms of making the cert on cacert, I have added a domain but when I try and create a certificate you are asked to provide a CSR does anyone know what you need to enter in this part of the form and in what format.

Thanks

CSR = certificate signing request, please see my post above where you get this data from.

Ok seems to work sort of... but the fact that you can only have one ssl per ip address is still the case ?

Is there a way around this?

Thanks

Did you follow these steps?

2) Go to the new SSL tab in the website settings in ISPConfig, enter the certificate details and select create as action and click on the save button.
