Is this windows or linux that you are trying to install the certificate on to.
If it is windows IIS server you can just import mycertificate.crt and see it it works ,that's all you might need in 90% of the cases.

You need a utility to do this, like OpenSSL.

Here also is a website which can do the conversion for you:  https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-converter.html

Hi Vadim, to export a PFX file you will need to RDP to your 2012 server and access the Microsoft Management console window (mmc) To do this simply go to start screen,  type "run" then in the subsequent small box type "mmc".

From the mmc console:
1. File-->Add/Remove snap-in
2. Select Certificates-->Add--> Computer account-->Finish
3. On the MMC console window, you will see the certificates snap-in, expand it and go to Personal-->Certificates
4. On the right you will see all the certs available on your server, select the one you want--> right click --> export
5. On the Certificate export wizard, Next -->Select "Yes" option for export Private Key--> Next-->Next again-->Create a password -->Next--> Select a place to export the pfx file and you are done.

cert.p7b doesn't have private key
it was generated on Exchange server and 'complete certificate request" option was already used when internal cert.pfx was created
What I am trying to say is that request was used second time when ordering cert from GoDaddy
Thank you
