Hi,

I received a mail with Thawte which contained the code for the new certificate.

i made a new txt file changed the extention to .cer and pasted the code in the file and saved it.

now i want to install this on IIS instead of the standard certificate but i can't seem to get it working.

any thoughts anybody?

Thawte has very specific instructions on their website on how to install a certificate. Go to this page and choose your version of IIS:

I guess this should resolve the issue with regards to installing SSL certificate on Default Web Site in IIS 6.0

i can't seem to select this option

7. Choose the "Process the pending request and install the certificate" option and click "Next".


because it's a renewal

OH - gotcha.  Did you have to issue a CSR (certificate request) in order to renew your certificate? If so how did you do that?  IIRC, what I did was create a new (temporary) website, issue the CSR from there, then install the certificate into that website.  Once the certificate is installed on your server, you can go to the active website and choose to Replace the current certificate with the new one.
