I'm not an expert on IIS but every year I really struggle getting a certificate onto an IIS7 server that hosts our ecommerce website.
I buy my certificates via 123-reg and I get a GlobalSign private key and a public key sent to me for the certificate.
The 123-reg help pages are useless and it never works following their instructions, because the instructions dont explain how to use the private key during installation.
There must be an easier way to get this stuff installed as it seems such an ordinary thing to do, and I cannot work out what I'm missing. I dread this coming around every year, and I usually end up installing a load of freebie apps until one generates a file that IIS understands.
Can anyone tell me if there is a simple way to take a private and a public key text file and end up with a certificate ready to be used on my IIS7 website.
Many thanks in anticipation.
