    Hi everybody

    I used SSL Manager to generate my private key and certificate signing request, and i bought a certificate that i copied in the "CRT" part of SSL Manager. Now the domain i wanted to use this certificate for appears in the "Certificates on server" list.

    Is it all done ?
    Do i have to do something else to install the certificate and start running pages in https ?
    How can i test this certificate ?

    Thanks for your help ;)

    In order to test this you should just visit the domain that you got the crt for via an https URL. You should do this with Firefox as I have found it to give the move informative output if there is a problem with the crt.

    When you visit a secure Web site, it automatically sends you its certificate, and Internet Explorer displays a lock icon on the status bar. Double click on the lock icon to view the information of the secure certificate.

    Thanks for these quick answers !

    Yes, i know the signs which show me i'm in SSL mode, my question was about the way to go in SSL mode... If i secured "www.mydomain.com", do i just have to type "https://www.mydomain.com" to see my homepage in SSL mode ?

    Thanks a lot :)
