Importing an SSL Private Key


Private keys can be imported into your server. Vidyo recommends carefully backing up your existing SSL Private Key in its entirety before starting SSL Private Key procedures.

In order to import an SSL Private Key, you must first clear the HTTPS Only checkbox.

You can only import encrypted and password protected private keys that were exported from servers that also encrypted and password protected the private keys.

Changes made to an SSL Private Key require a new CSR and SSL Server Certificate. This includes importing existing keys, exporting existing keys, and regenerating new keys.

Private Keys are replaced if you choose to import from.p7b, .pfx, or .vidyo bundle formats. For more information, see Importing Certificates from a Certificate Bundle.

To import a private key:

  1. Log in to the Super Admin portal using your Super Admin account.
