You can create a new self-signed cert for your users until you solve the issue.

But, check the path to your cert file for OWA (not the trusted root cert path) because that may be your issue.

In on the owa site, it shows the path as a local path I believe. What I mean is there is nothing above the cert.

Is there a way to remove the new cert and just go back to using the old one?

Try this except replace with the name of your old cert file (which you know the path to).

Ok, I did that successfully. Now the last step it says is to       

Install the server certificate on your Web server.

How do I do that?
