Where can SSL certificate be installed in IIS 5.1?
Posted on 2009-05-11
I have a simple question that I need an answer on. I am working with our Accounting software technical support trying to get our timecard website working correctly, and they are telling me to install my SSL certificate on one of the subfolders under the Default Web Site. I don't think IIS allows that. I have tried applying the SSL certificate to the subfolder and the "Server Certificate" button is always greyed out. I can apply the SSL certificate to the whole Default Web Site and then check the box "Require SSL" for each subfolder. Is this the correct way to do it or will IIS allow you the apply the SSL certificate at the subfolder level? I have been arguing back and forth with their technical support, and I need proof of what IIS allows. They told me that they have tested it hundreds of times, but I can't get it to work. Please advise. If anyone has a link or something that I can send them for proof, that would be great.
