SSL Certificate Renewal Private Key issue

I am trying to download and install the renewed SSL cert but the ZIP file I have downloaded doesn't contain any private key.  Is there a way to download the private key or generate it from what I have downloaded? The zip file only contains the intermediate cert and the main cert with crt extension.

Use this website to combine your new certificate, GoDaddy certificates,  and the original private key to a PFX file.  After that, you're good to go. https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-converter.html

Hey @choirman

 

Private key files should have already been generated within the server you created your initial CSR request for the certificate from. Our SSL teams do not provide this file nor do they recommend sharing it outside of the server it was generated from as this could invalidate your issued SSL files.

We have a similar situation. We did a renewal of the security certificate through GoDaddy but our site is hosted on Microsoft Azure which requires a PFX file in order for it to be uploaded. What course of action would you recommend?

Any luck! I'm having the same issue with Azure, not 100% sure how to create the pfx
