I have uninstall SSL for testing purpose now when I tried to re-install the same third party SSL certificate, I receive "The key does not match the certificate." message.

For testing, I have deleted the old Private Keys (KEY). But at the same time that certificate is working in TEMP URL.

How can I resolve it?

Hello vp,

Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your SSL install. Simply follow the normal SSL installation procedure to reinstall. If it still fails on the key, you may need to have the SSL vendor rekey it for you with your new CSR.

Kindest Regards,
