Problem installing an SSL certificate in IIS


I need to install the SSL certificate on my Windows IIS server.

I have generated a CSR but I can’t see where I need to generate the corresponding certificate.

If it is a Wildcard certificate, I can import it from a PFX format and a password, but I don’t see how to do this.

Thanks for your help


Thank you for asking.

May I ask if you’re using Windows server or some other Windows OS?

If so, which version, and what version of IIS are you running on your machine?

Furthermore, regarding the SSL certificate, are you trying to use the Cloudflare’s Origin SSL certificate? :thinking:

Some helpful related articles:

You would also have to install the Cloudflare Origin CA certificate:

I’ve put both of them to the Trusted store and binded to the 443 port for my site, and it worked, at least on a Windows Server 2012 R2 machine and IIS 8.5 in my case (2-3 months ago).
