I have one quick question on replacing a SSL certificate for a web site.  I created the temp website so I could generate the CSR.  I have my new certificate and am in the processing of installing it.  The instructions say to install the certificate to the temp web site and then move it to the production web site.  

Do I also install the intermediate certificates to the temp site?  Or do I do just the first certificate to the temp site, move it to production and then install the intermediate certificates.  I want to make sure I do this correctly.

The correct sequence is:
Whatever root certificates, intermediate certificates are there, just install 1st.
Root cert should be installed in trusted root certification authorities on the server
Intermediate cert should be installed in intermediate certificate authorities on the server.
later on you can install actual cert on server and just need to enable ssl for required web site
