Importing an SSL Certificate

After you receive the signed certificate from the Certificate Authority, you must import it into Unleashed.

To import a signed certificate:

  1. Click the Browse button and select the file that contains the certificate (in PEM format) to upload it.
  2. If there are no intermediate CA certificates, then click the Import button to install the uploaded certificate.
    Note: If the certificate does not match the currently installed private key you will be prompted to upload the correct private key.
  3. If your Unleashed certificate was issued by an intermediate CA, then you must also import the intermediate CA's certificate (as well as all other intermediate CA certificates in the path to the root CA). In that event, you would receive intermediate CA certificate download instructions from the certificate vendor. To import an intermediate certificate:
    1. After selecting the end certificate, click on the intermediate certificate import option.
    2. Click the Import button to display the Import Intermediate Certificates form.
    3. Click the Browse button and select the file containing the intermediate certificate (PEM format) to upload it.
    4. If there are no additional intermediate certificates, click the Import button to install the uploaded certificate.
  4. Alternatively, you can simplify this process by appending the intermediate CA certificate(s) to the Unleashed certificate file. Then, you just need to import a single file. The intermediate certificate(s) will be imported automatically. In this case, you will see multiple ---BEGIN CERTIFICATE--- and ---END CERTIFICATE--- pairs in the file.
