Re-Keying an SSL Certificate.

Re-keying is the process of replacing an existing SSL certificate. If you are moving your SSL certificate to a new server, if your server has crashed, or if you have lost your private key, you want to re-key your SSL certificate.

To Re-key an SSL Certificate.

  1. Log in to your Account Manager.
  2. In the My Products section, select SSL Certificates.
  3. Next to the certificate you want to manage, click Manage Certificate.
  4. From the Filters list, click Certificates and then click the common name for the certificate you want to re-key.
  5. Copy the certificate details shown on the screen and use that exact data when creating a new CSR. Exact capitalization, punctuation and spacing are required. For Standard (Medium Assurance) certificates the CSR details for City, State and Country are not critical.
  6. Generate a new CSR. If you need help, use our CSR Generation Instructions.
  7. After the new CSR is generated, return to the Secure Certificate Manager. From the screen where you copied your certificate details, click Re-Key.
  8. Paste your server-generated CSR in the CSR field and click Re-Key.
  9. Specify your server type and click the link to download the re-keyed certificate.
