Within the approval email, the SSL certificate is sent as both an attachment (.cer) and as encoded text in the body of the e-mail. If you did not receive the .cer attachment in the email, you can create the certificate file by working with the encoded text in the body of the email.
In order to format the certificate properly from the body of the email, perform the following steps:
- Copy text from the order fulfillment e-mail using a plain text editor (e.g., vi or Notepad).
Note: It is not recommended to use Microsoft Word or other word processing programs because they often add invisible characters. Make sure that there are no extra lines or spaces anywhere in the file. Your file should look similar to this example:
E cFEpf0WForA eRP6XraWw8rTN8102zGrcJgg4P6XVS4l39 l5aCEGGbauLP5W6
K99c42ku3QrlX2 KeDi xBG2cEIsdSiXeQS/16S36ITclu4AADEA52AAAAAAAA
- For Microsoft server, save the certificate as .p7b file extension. And for non Microsoft server, save the certificate as a .txt or .cer file.
Note: There is no specific naming convention required to be used for the certificate file. It is recommended to use a name that you will be familiar with as you will need to specify this file during installation.
