Certificate Woes

by mjfera In reply to HTTPS Connections

I had the *identical* problem with an Entrust Cert. Turns out that due to a bug of some sort in IIS (so say the Entrust folks), you have to build the cert request in a very odd fashion.

Create a Temp site on your Web Server. Generate the request from the Temp site. Have them re-issue with this new cert request. Now create your live site, and install the cert.

I got bit on that one TWICE, because I just assumed I could create the request from the live site. Silly me.
