IIS SSL/TLS Certificate Setup

Simplistic, works for me, in my given scenario.

Create Certificate Request:

From the IIS server needing the new certificate, open IIS Manager:

- In the left window pane, select the server.
- In the center window pane, select "Server Certificates".
- In the right window pane, select "Create Certificate Request".
- Enter the information in the pop up window.
- Cryptographic Service Provider:
	"Microsoft RSA SChannel Cryptographic Provider"
- Bit Length:
	2048
- Provide a path and a name for the request certificate:
	C:\Users\Me\Desktop\csr.txt

The copy/paste the csr.txt text in the request form in the certificate authority’s web interface, or submit the request file to the certificate authority.

Install the SSL Certificate:

Once the certificate authority has provided you with the new certificate, log back onto the IIS server that you created the request on and open IIS Manager:

- In the left window pane, select the server.
- In the center window pane, select "Server Certificates".
- In the right window pane, select "Complete Certificate Request…".
- In the pop up window:
	Select the new certificate.
	Add a friendly name to help ID it.
	Select "Web Hosting".

Bind to the new certificate to the web site:

- In the left window pane, select the web site 
	Possibly "Default Web Site", or maybe not.
- In the right window pane, select "Bindings…".
- In the "Site Bindings:" pop up, choose add or edit.  I'm doing edit here.
- Select "HTTPS" and click the "Edit" button.
- Select the new certificate.
- In the right window pane, restart the service.

Use a web browser to check the site and the new certificate expiration date.
