I have a GoDaddy exteneded EV certificate that I am trying to renew. It had completely expired before I realized it was up for renewal. In a haste, I generated a CSR to issue a new certificate from the web site where the original certificate was installed.

After a few days went by, I realized that they also allow the creation of a temporary certificate for use during the 10 day EV approval process. While I can easily create a CSR and then generate and export the certificate into a file, I am puzzled how I can add the certificate back to the original site without deleting the current CSR request (for the EV certificate) that is there.

I found this post indicating I can generate the certificate without the original pending CSR using command line utilities, but I would rather not resort to that if there is another way to install the certificate without deleting the pending CSR.
