When a S3 Certificate has expired, it will need to be renewed by a Certificate Authority (Digicert, GoDaddy, Etc). Once S3 has been renewed by a CA, please export the certificate into a .PEM/PFX format. Note, SSL offloading or Re-encryption will need to be enabled for a S3 Virtual Service in-order for the certificate to be imported and applied to that Virtual Service. 

To import a renewed certificate to S3 Service, please implement the following steps:

    1. In the main menu, select Certificates & Security > SSL Certificates
    2. Under Manage Certificates, Select > Import Certificatesmceclip1.png
    3. To install a certificate with a .PEM/PFX format
    4. Select > Certificate File & choose Certificate with .pem/.pfx file type.
    5. Ignore the Key File (optional) if the .pem/.pfx Certificate contains/includes the private key.
    6. If .pem/.pfx Certificate File does not contain the private key, please select > Key File (optional) & choose the private key created/linked to this .pem certificate. Note. The Key File format needs to be saved as a .key file type.
    7. Enter the password in the Pass Phrase field if there is a password assigned with this .pem/.pfx certificate when generated.
