SSL (GoDaddy) & SBS2003

So you want to secure your server, so that users know they are connecting to the right server?

Here are the steps:

1. Create an account with GoDaddy (it may be worth surfing around, to be certain that you are getting the best deal).
2. Login to the SBS server and run CEICW and confirm that the correct domain name that you want is listed (secure.DOMAINNAME.com.au).
3. FInish the wizard, to it installs the domain name in the proper places.
4. Open IIS, and right click the website that runs your port 80/443 service.
5. Choose Properties, then Directory Security Tab.
6. Click Server Certificate, and next
7. I would recommend removing the certificate, then re-running this wizard, to create a new certificate. Make sure you will it out accurately!!!!! Or the certificate will be denied by the vendor. Store the certreq.txt somewhere handy.
8. Login to Go Daddy, and manage certificates, request one, and use the contents of the certreq file to continue.
9. Confirm the details are correct, and then continue.
10. When the email comes back with your new certificate, we can install it. :)

NB. REMEMBER to store the certreq.txt with your request files in case you need them later!
