Install SSL for domains and plesk panel login page:
For installing SSL in domains and plesk panel login page follow the steps described below,
Log into the plesk panel as admin
Go to the domain where you want to install the ssl certificate
Click on the certificates option
Click on Add New Certificate
Fill out all the details and make sure you use www.thedomainname.com.
Then click request to generate the CSR (certificate signature request) which will be sent to the CA(certificate authority) to generate a valid certificate.
In the list of certificates, click the download button to download the CSR to your hard drive.
Buy an ssl certificate.
Enter the domain name to secure as www.thedomainname.com
Open the CSR file into notepad and copy into the fields on the site where you are buying your ssl certificate.
Wait for the validation process.
You may also need to download the root CA certificates from the website of your chosen certificate authority .
You will then receive the ssl certificate via email.
Select just the certificate and copy into notepad and save as certificate.txt
Again go to the domain > certificates
Then where it says “Find the appropriate private key to the certificate…….CERTIFICATE:” click the browse button and choose the certificate.txt file on your hard drive.
Now click on certificate from the list.
In the CA (certificate authority) field click the browse button and locate the certificate authority file on your hard drive ca_certificate.txt and click send file.
Once your certificate appears good in the list you then need to ensure that the IP address used by the domain name is exclusive. This can be checked in Server > IP Aliasing.
If you need to make any changes click on the IP address and then make it exclusive.
If there still appears to be other domain names using the IP address, go into each domain name > setup and change to another IP address.
Now go to the domain name you want to secure > setup
Select the exclusive IP address and your SSL certificate which should appear in the drop down menu.
Now go to Server > Reboot. This normally takes about 3 mins to do.
Finally test your ssl certificate by going to https://www.thedomainname.com.
If you want to secure the login page to plesk on the main server, go to Server > Certificates > Add New Certificate
Enter the same details except this time you have all the relevant files on your hard drive. So select the .pem, certificate, and ca_certificate.txt files and choose send file.
Now you can access your control panel by https://www.thedomainname.com:8443.
