 ===== Install Using Certificate Files ===== ===== Install Using Certificate Files =====
 +The instructions for installing an SSL certificate from the certificate files varies slightly between different control panels -- we have both DirectAdmin and cPanel/WHM covered in the section below.
  
 +==== Installing the Certificate in DirectAdmin ====
 +<WRAP center round info 60%>
 +This section of the guide is focused around deployed servers with DirectAdmin'​s new skin "​Evolution"​
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +You'll need to login to your DirectAdmin user through the DirectAdmin Panel -- or if you're the Administrator,​ you can drop in through the ''​admin''​ user.  Once at the ''​user''​ level, go to "​Account Manager"​ and click "SSL Certificates":​
 +
 +**Evolution - Default**:
 +
 +{{:​control-panels:​directadmin:​da_csr1.png?​nolink&​800|}}
 +
 +----
 +
 +**Evolution - Icon**:
 +
 +{{:​control-panels:​directadmin:​da_csr1-alt.png?​nolink&​800|}}
 +
 +----
 +
 +Once inside the SSL Certificate area, you'll see many different choices:
 +
 +  * Let's Encrypt
 +  * Paste pre-generated
 +  * Certificate Request
 +  * Self Signed
 +
 +You'll want to ensure that you have "Paste pre-generated'​ box checked as outlined in the following screenshot:
 +
 +{{:​control-panels:​directadmin:​da_ssl1.png?​nolink&​800|}}
 +
 +You'll see two boxes in this window, the "​Key"​ box and the "​Certificate"​ Box.
 +
 +The "​key"​ box is for the ''​Private RSA Key''​
 +
 +The "​certificate"​ box is for the actual certificate or ''​.crt''​ file
 +
 +Please see this example:
 +
 +{{:​control-panels:​directadmin:​da_ssl2-1.png?​nolink&​800|}}
 +
 +Once your certificate is entered, click "​Save"​ for it to take effect.
 +
 +<WRAP center round important 60%>
 +Some certificates require you to enter the CA Root Certificate bundled with the certificate as well -- please be aware of this!
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +=== Setting CA Root Certificate ===
 +
 +To set the CA Root Certificate,​ you'll want to click "CA Root Certificate"​ within the SSL Certificate area:
 +
 +{{:​control-panels:​directadmin:​da_ssl3.png?​nolink&​800|}}
 +
 +This will take you to the "CA Root Certificate"​ window to apply the certificate.
 +
 +You paste it and click "​Save"​ -- simple as that!
 +
 +{{:​control-panels:​directadmin:​da_ssl2.png?​nolink&​800|}}
 +
 +Your SSL certificate at this point should be installed properly.
