Problem

How do I install a CA in the Linux Hosting Control panel?

Solution

To install a CA (Or Intermediate Certificate, or CA Bundle), please follow the steps below:

  1. Obtain certificate from CA. (This tool will give a download for it at the bottom https://ssltools.websecurity.symantec.com/checker/views/certCheck.jsp)
  2. Login to Plesk, and then click on domain name to modify.
  3. Click on SSL Certificates, and then click on the certificate.
  4. Where it asks for CA certificate, paste the certificate code.
  5. Click Send Text. Wait 5+ minutes for the change to take effect.

Once you have done this, use this altered CA bundle when installing your Intermediate CA, bearing in mind that this altered bundle may not be compatible with older operating system and browsers.

More Information

To use a CA bundle provided by GeoTrust with SHA-2 (https://knowledge.rapidssl.com/support/ssl-certificate-support/index?page=content&actp=CROSSLINK&id=SO26457), you may need to alter the bundle by removing the SHA1 intermediate CA certificate from the bundle.
