Additional information:
  • If the files received from your agent one of the above is minning, we most likely won't be able to help.
  • File extensions don't matter when uploading certificate/key files – other extensions can be opend by choosing "All filetypes (*.*)" and uploading a file with any name.
  • In the certificate is invalid, an error will be displayed (i.e. "Private key doesn't match the certificate) – the certificate isn't saved then.
  • Key/certificate files can have contents other than the format mentioned above – thst's OK.
  • When saving the certificate, we DON'T check if it's correct for the site it's being used on – you might receive a certificate for a diffrent domain from your agent.
  • To verify if your certificate is the right one, go to https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html and type in your domain address.
  • After adding/removing a certificate, please contact the MerlinX Support Team, with a certificate update request – the certificate will be visible after an update is performed.
