I have an SSL certificate on FMS which works fine. It expires in March. When getting this certificate, I paid for two years. Of course, nowadays, the cert only lasts a year a time. So, my question is how to "re-issue" the certificate already paid for -- for the 2nd year.
So, will I just need to download the new certificate from the SSL vendor and repost it to FMS using the process below ? I'm assuming I would just download the new (2nd Year) SSL certificate (available automatically when first year over), and from FileMaker Server SSL Import:
Browse for CRT file.
Browse for private key file (unchanged-> /Library/FileMaker Server/CStore).
Browse for the cert bundle just downloaded.
Enter your private key password.
--- OR ---
Do I need to go through the entire CSR process again to re-issue the 2nd year of the paid certificate?
From what Namecheap just told me on their online chat, it seems you have to start over with a brand new CSR for the second year of the SSL cert, whether you already paid for the second year or not.
This is a generic question but applies to FMS the same way it would apply elsewhere I think.
I'm guessing someone has already had to do this process with the new "only one year at a time for SSL" thing.
