How to replace an already expired SSL Certificate.
I have always found SSL Certificates confusing and it is even more confusing if things do not work as planned from the instructions provided. But it is a good opportunity to learn. I have an SSL Certificate from godaddy.com and it has expired(1 month ago, or 30 days ago). It is not a wild card certificate and we need to renew and replace it for an appliance and its web address. I see notes from: https://support.cartika.com/portal/kb/articles/renewing-your-ssl-certificate-godaddy-19-6-2018
on how to create a n SSL certificate and this part seems very familiar and straight forward.
Question1: Do I need to generate a new CSR from that hosting appliance?
a. I am assuming yes and I found out how to do this on the appliance.
Question2: How do I know what type of certificate to create? Example, for Apache or Tomcat or Other?
a. I see from my note s that all 3 were created last year; but, I am not sure which one was used.
b. From the appliance configuration I see a "key Pair" type is listed.
Question3. I have notes on how to upload the certificate to the appliance; but, I am confused with how to import the certificate correctly. We had problems initially when a consultant was doing this. Initailly the certificate only worked correctly with iphones and computers; but, not with Android phones.
a. The consultant that did this last year had to "create the certificate a little bit differently to go into the product".
b. That consultant is no longer with that firm and we do not do business with that firm any longer.
c. I do not know what he meant by that. Maybe I will need to contact the vendor if the problem comes back.
