    Perhaps it's a stupid question, but how do I install my own SSL cert for a website?

    Assuming my website is and I have (private key), (certificate), (SSL vendor bundle), and I use a dedicated IP for it - if I go to Website -> Domain -> and click SSL, I only have these options:

    SSL Request - does not apply; I don't need to specify a CSR
    SSL Certificate - I'd put content here
    SSL Bundle - I'd put content here

    So, it looks like there is no space to provide the private key - confusing.

    How do I assign a SSL cert to a website?

    From the ISPConfig 3 Manual (screenshots missing in this post):

    Will this affect the ssl login for the ISPConfig 3 control panel?

    If I setup SSL for a website/domain, can I use a different and new certificate from the one created in the ISPConfig setup?

    I saw: "Please note that you can have just one SSL web site per IP address."

    but does the control panel count as the one website since it's using IP address only?

    The situation is that for the control panel login I don't mind the ssl cert warning in Firefox, but I need ssl for a website without the ssl cert warning using a certificate from startssl or another company and I only have 1 ip address for the server.

    ISPConfig runs on a different port (8080), so it doesn't count. :)
