Installing and Binding an SSL Certificate in IIS 8 or 8.5

  1. Save the file provided by your Certificate Authority to the desktop of the web server you are securing.  This may involve opening and unzipping a ZIP file
  2. From the Start screen, click or search for Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager and open it.
  3. Click on the server name.
  4. From the center menu, double-click the Server Certificates button in the IIS section (it is in the middle of the menu).
  5. From the "Actions" menu (on the right), click on Complete Certificate Request... This will open the Complete Certificate Request wizard.
  6. Browse to certificate file that was provided to you by your Certificate Authority. You will then be required to enter a friendly name. The friendly name is not part of the certificate itself, but is used by the server administrator to easily distinguish the certificate. Choose to place the new certificate in the Personal certificate store.
  7. Clicking "OK" will install the certificate to the server.
  8. Once the SSL Certificate has been successfully installed to the server, you will need to assign that certificate to the appropriate website using IIS.
  9. From the "Connections" menu in the main Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager window, select the name of the server to which the certificate was installed.
  10. Under "Sites," select the Jet site to be secured with SSL.
  11. From the "Actions" menu (on the right), click on "Bindings..." This will open the "Site Bindings" window.
  12. In the Site Bindings window, select the Port (usually 443) that was specified during the installation of the Jet Web Portal and then click Edit... This will open the Edit Site Binding window.
  13. The IP address should be the IP address of the site or All Unassigned, and the port over which traffic will be secured by SSL is usually 443. From the SSL Certificate drop-down list, select the certificate name that you just installed.
  14. Click "OK."
  15. Your SSL certificate is now installed, and the Jet Web Portal configured to accept secure connections.
