NOTE: This guide is for 3rd party SSL certificates or certificates already configured on a different server. If you have just purchased an SSL through us, click here for the guide to install the SSL.

How to get the Certificate Code
Your SSL provider may provide you with SSL files that look something like this:

The ServerCertificate.cer file has the SSL code need for manual install. You can use a text editor like Notepad to open the file (or TextEdit on Mac). Make sure you select All Files (*) to show the .cer files when you open them.
