Certificate Installation in Vesta Control Panel

This how-to will walk you through installing an SSL/TLS certificate in Vesta Control Panel (VestaCP). VestaCP is a lightweight open-source control panel offered by several web hosts, including Namecheap and AWS.

Before you install a certificate, you will first need to generate a certificate signing request (CSR) and submit it to SSL.com for validation and signing. Please refer to our how-to on CSR generation in Vesta Control Panel and guide to submitting a CSR.

If you generated your CSR outside of Vesta CP, copy and paste your private key into this field, making sure to include the lines ----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY---- and ----END RSA PRIVATE KEY---- and replacing any text that is already there.
