I have to install a SSL certificate on a windows server 2003 web server. IIS 6.0. I have never done this before. I have some questions. From research it looks like I can install it using Symantec SSL Assistant or using the IIS Administrator interface. I will get the certificate through email.
My questions are
1. Is one of these methods better than the other.
2. Do I have to disable the 'VerisSign Class 3 Public Primary Certification Authoirty-G5 Root CA certificate before I install.
3. Will my current web site till be able to use http files that are not protected after installing the certificate. Not sure if all my URL's have to be converted to https or if the certificate will only be activated if the URL is https. I don't want to redo all my URLS.
Any links would be appreciated on how to do this sucessfully.
