Cisco ASA5510 invalid security certificate for SSL VPN

I bought and configured a certificate from Thawte but am getting invalid certificate error in the browser. The ASA previously had a self-signed certificate which I did not delete at the time. I've just zeroiz
ed it but still getting the invalid cert error. Any ideas on how to resolve?
Thanks for any help.

Here is the error. Thanks.

Secure Connection Failed
vpn.sslname.com uses an invalid security certificate.
The certificate is not trusted because it is self signed.
The certificate is only valid for sslvpn.previousselfsigned.net
(Error code: sec_error_untrusted_issuer)
    * This could be a problem with the server's configuration, or it could be someone trying to impersonate the server.

    * If you have connected to this server successfully in the past, the error may be temporary, and you can try again later.

          Or you can add an exception&

Can I remove the certificate 'no crypto ca trustpoint <trustpoint-name>' then re-authenticate and re-install the same certificate or will the "no" command require me to re-create a CSR and pay for another certificate?

Ok... I reloaded the ASA and now get the error below. Any ideas anyone? Thanks.

Issue was resolved by removing the certificate, changing the hostname of the ASA to match the host name for the trustpoint/certificate, then re-creating the certificate.
