Step 1: Download your certificate

           the steps from this link: SO16222

           The text file should look like:

            -----BEGIN PKCS#7-----

                   [encoded data]

            -----END PKCS#7-----
    4.    Make sure there are 5 dashes to either side of the BEGIN CERTIFICATE and END CERTIFICATE and
           that no white spaces, extra line breaks or additional characters have been inadvertently added.

    5.    Save the file with extansion .p7b or .txt

Step 2: Install your certificate

    1.    Go to Console One and to the private key that created the Certificate Signing Request (CSR).

    2.    Go to the Public Key Certificate Tab.

    3.    Select Import

    4.    Select "No Trusted Root Certificate available", and then Next.

    5.    Import the Server Certificate that you downloaded in Step1.
