    I went to install a new Thawte SSL123 certificate and did the steps I thought required.

    Once I received the certificateS from Thawte (my certificate AND SSL123 Intermediate CA), I went to WHM -> SSL/TLS -> Install an SSL Certificate and Setup the Domain.

    Once at that screen, I pasted MY certificate where it ask for a crt, and then my key where it asks for key, and all the other details domain, ip, username. I didn't realise I had to put the Intermediate CA certificate in the CA bundle spot, and pressed Do It.

    All looked ok in IE (no popup error messages) - the padlock appears, but when I tried the secure page in Mozilla/Netscape I got the folling error : "Could not verify this certificate because the issuer is unkown."

    I am trying now to add the CA certificate. I have deleted the certificate thst I added above, re-added teh certificate but this time I did so WITH putting the Intermediate CA cetificate in the third textfield titled (Paste the ca bundle here (optional)), and pressed "Do It", however using Netscape and Mozilla when I navigate to my SSL page I still got the error "Could not verify this certificate because the issuer is unkown."

    has anyone had this error? Can anyone please help me!! :)

    Please, pretty please!! :eek:
