Help with SSL install

Hello,

I purchased an SSL certificate for my website - www.odesfinancing.com , and I am a little unsure on how to install it on my site. This website is just an index.html page that I have hosting a form. I want to make the site SSL so we can capture more sensitive data to help our customers with financing. But, when I get the SSL badge code and add it to the footer of my index.html file, it does not appear. What am I doing wrong? And how can I get the "https://" to show on the address line?

In your cPanel account you should be able to add the SSL Certificate for your domain. Once you do that you may also have to add some code to your .htaccess file in order to "force" the site to be over HTTPS

Re: Help with SSL install

I downloaded my root and intermediate certificates fine.  I uploaded them to the server (apache). My problem is that when I choose the certificate to go ahead and install in, it shows the right certificate (all FQDNs etc), populates the required fields for public key and all else except for it won't auto populate the private key field.  Since it's a required field for the form, I can't move forward.  I tried all the .key files I have found using cPanel File mgr,  even generated new ones and it keeps erroring out with "public and private keys don't match".  <--parapharased the error.  Thanks for any help you can provide.  GoDaddy will charge me $100 for what is really a simple process when it works.  Their how to video shows the private key field autopopulating which isn't reality in my case. 😕
