How to configure a site to use HTTPS under IIS
/documentation/pages/HowTo/IIS/Configure a site to use HTTPS.xml

Installing an SSL/HTTPS certificate for a site running under IIS is straight forward. The IIS server maintains a list of available certificates that have been added to it and each site has an HTTPS binding that uses one of those certificates.

A certificate authority typically has it's own form for making a certificate request, but you may also create a standard certificate request file that is a plain text file and can be used by a certificate authority instead. This may be needed if the certificate authority's certificate request form does not have all the settings that you need for specifying certificate properites.

The instructions below show how a certificate request file can be created, how the returned .pfx or .cer certificate from the certificate authority can be added to an IIS server, and how to set which certificate is used by a site in IIS.
