Installing an SSL certificate on a SiteWorx account is easy, and it creates an encrypted link between the server connection and your website(HTTPS). In this guide, you will see the step-by-step guide on installing an SSL certificate in the SiteWorx account.
1. Login into SiteWorx Account
The first step is that if you are inside the InterWorx control panel, head over to Account from the left side panel and click on it.
If you do not have access to modifying/creating an SSL certificate for your SiteWorx account, give permission to be able to modify/create it. To do this, before logging into your SiteWorx account, click Edit on the domain that you want to install the SSL certificate.
Head over to Package Options, and make sure that SSL Access is set to Yes.
After confirming that you have SSL Access enabled, log in by clicking on SiteWorx and proceed to the next step.
2. Open SSL Files
After logging into your SiteWorx of your domain, click on Hosting features on the left side panel.
Now click on Domains.
Then click on SSL to access SSL Files.
3. Delete If You Already Have SSL Certificate Installed
If you already have an SSL Certificate installed, you will see INSTALLED written under the Status column. If you have any rows installed, you have to delete them to create a new one. Even if you want to renew your SSL Certificate, you have to delete the old one. But if you don’t have any of the rows installed, you can skip this step.
To delete the first three rows, click on View Private Key.
Click on Delete on the bottom left corner. Deleting the Private Key will also delete CSR and SSL Certificate.
Now click on View SSL Chain Certificate.
Again, on the bottom left corner, click on Delete.
Now you have successfully deleted your SSL certificate.
4. Create Your SSL Certificate
Copy and paste the private key in the mentioned blue box(including BEGIN and END line). The private key is usually inside a file named private.key, and you can open it with a text document or text editor.
After pasting the key inside the mentioned blue box, click Install.
Now you will see the Private Key row says INSTALLED. For installing CSR click on Setup CSR.
Now you have to fill the form and then click on Generate.
After you have CSR successfully installed, click on Setup SSL Certificate.
Copy and paste your certificate code inside the mentioned blue box(including BEGIN and END line). SSL certificate is usually inside a file name called certificate.crt. As mentioned earlier, you can open the file using a text document or text editor.
Now click on Setup SSL Chain Certificate.
Copy and paste your chain certificate code inside the mentioned blue box(including BEGIN and END line). SSL chain certificate is usually inside a file name called ca_bundle.crt. Again, as mentioned earlier, you can open the file using a text document or text editor.
5. Check the Installation of SSL Certificate
If you have done all the steps correctly, you should see that all rows of Status columns are written INSTALLED. You have successfully installed the SSL Certificate on your SiteWorx account.
After doing all these steps, your domain now uses an SSL Certificate, and it should change from HTTP to HTTPS.
