    Hi all,

    A few days ago I recieved a Thawte 123 SSL certificate for my head website.
    Now i want to import and activate this for my website but is goes not as planned.

    Could anybody say me how to import and activate this for a website?
    If i add this to the SSL section in the field SSL certificate and click 'action: Save certificate' it does nothing..

    It creates only a domainname.ext.key and domainname.ext.csr file in the domainname.ext/ssl/* folder.

    THe save action does not seems to work with not self-signing certificates..

    Could please help me someone with this?

    I dont like to do it manually with the apache configs in the .vhost files because when a update arrives of ispconfig all is gone so..

    Thank you
    Stefan E.

    First you have to create a certificate in ISPConfig (action: "Create Certificate"), then you copy the CSR and go to your CA with it to make them create a trusted certificate. You then copy that certificate into the "SSL Certificate" field and select "Save Certificate" and click on "Save".

    I already have a certificate and private key. The request is done by my provider where i bought it.
