Upload Certificate Bundle Manually

This feature is only really needed if you want to re-use an existing certificate rather than the automatically generated Let's Encrypt certificate (Let Spam Experts manage your public certificate).

First, you need your certificate chain saved as a bundle file. This is a single file containing the private key, any intermediate certificates and the Certification Authority (CA) certificate in a single file:

  1. Export the required key and certificate(s) to text files.
  2. Create a file locally with a .pem extension, containing the following data (replace text in italic with your personal data) and save in a temporary location:
  3. - - - - - BEGIN PRIVATE KEY - - - - -
    <Private key from server used to generate the CSR>
    - - - - - END PRIVATE KEY - - - - -
    - - - - - BEGIN CERTIFICATE - - - - -
    <Certificate code provided by the certificate issuer>
    - - - - - END CERTIFICATE - - - - -
    - - - - - BEGIN CERTIFICATE - - - - -
    <Intermediate certificates provided by the issuer (not always provided, root CA cert (below) may be enough in some cases)>
    - - - - - END CERTIFICATE - - - - -
    - - - - - BEGIN CERTIFICATE - - - - -
    <Root certificate provided by certificate issuer>
    - - - - - END CERTIFICATE - - - - -

Next you need to upload your bundle:

  1. In the Admin Level Control Panel, select Branding > Branding Management.
  2. In the Edit brand page, in the HTTPS SSL certificate section, choose the option Upload your own certificate bundle.
  3. Browse and select the .pem file or drag and drop into the dialog box.
  4. Click Import.
  5. Click Save.
