SSL Certificate with GoDaddy

Good day everyone. A web application that I have inherited seems to have an issue with certain browsers and certain remote locations accessing it.

In looking at sslshopper.com and checking our domain, the last portion states the following:

The certificate is not trusted in all web browsers. You may need to install an Intermediate/chain certificate to link it to a trusted root certificate. Learn more about this error. You can fix this by following GoDaddy's Certificate Installation Instructions for your server platform. Pay attention to the parts about Intermediate certificates.

I am using IIS 6 to run this application. What would i need to do to resolve this?

All GoDaddy SSL certificates require to have the GoDaddy "chain" certificate loaded with the individual certificate.

There are instructions here:

http://support.godaddy.com/help/article/4875/installing-an-ssl-certificate-in-microsoft-iis-5-amp-6

The above depends on which version of iis you are using.

You should have the intermediary "chain" certificate file with the original certificate, if not you can download it I believe from GoDaddy.

If not available on GoDaddy we can send you a link to download from us.

As I thought GoDaddy does have a download area for the intermediary cert:

https://certs.godaddy.com/anonymous/repository.seam

The one you would need is:

•Go Daddy PKCS7 Certificate Intermediates Bundle (for Windows IIS)


And they have a help page that ight be useful for you:

So, I installed the Intermediate Certificate as instructed by GoDaddy. When I check on chain certificate connection, it still states it is in error. Do I have to restart IIS for it to take affect or do I have to reinstall the SSL certificate?

You will have to restart IIS for sure. Plus make sure it is a GoDaddy certificate (they also issue certificates under the Starfield brand).
