    Here is my problem. I went into plesk and for the server I added a certificate. I have the text for the private key and the actual certificate text that I put into the correct fields within plesk. I then click the button that says submit text and my certificate is generated and then it shows up in the list of SSL certificates. So what I do then is check mark the box next to the certificate and click the SETUP button which installs the certificate into plesk. Now I set the certificate to be the default and thatís when I think done. So now I go to Domains and go to my domain and then click the certificates button in this window. I create the certificate in the same manner as I did for the server except this time I donít have the option to set it as the default because itís the only certificate in the list.

    I use firefox as my browser and when I go to the Plesk Login page I receive a popup notification telling me about the certificate and when I look at the details indeed it is the certificate I setup in plesk. The address for the login to plesk begins with https and works. However ANYWHERE outside of plesk HTTPS brings users to a 404 page. For example our billing system is modern bill. I have modern bill setup to use an SSL certificate however when customers go to login and the address changes from http to https it goes to a 404 page. This is my main problem. Nothing outside of plesk is correctly using the SSL certificate. What gives?

    404? file not found?

    You have copied the files (or made a symlink) to the httpsdocs directory for the domains you're hosting under ssl?

    (disclaimer: that's how it works in Linux, you have a httpdoc folder for all normal http files, and a httpsdocs folder to put the secure files in)
