SSL Installation: Odin (Plesk v.11, 12, & 12.5)
The following instructions will guide you through the SSL installation process on Odin (Plesk v.11, 12, & 12.5).
Make sure you have all the following files saved before proceeding:
- Your Server Certificate - This is the certificate you received from the CA for your domain. You may have been sent this via email. If not, you can download it by visiting your Account Dashboard and clicking on your order.
- Intermediate Certificates - These files allow the devices connecting to your server to identify the issuing CA. There may be more than one of these certificates. If you got your certificate in a ZIP folder, it should also contain the Intermediate certificate(s), which is sometimes referred to as a CA Bundle. If not, download the appropriate CA Bundle for your certificate.
- Your Private Key - This file should be on your server, or in your possession if you generated your CSR from a free generator tool. On certain platforms, such as Microsoft IIS, the private key is not immediately visible to you but the server is keeping track of it.
- Log in to Odin, this can typically be accessed by going to https://domain.com:8443.
- Enter your Username/Password and click Log in.
- In the Power User View, click Websites & Domains in the top navigation menu.
- Navigate to the correct Domain Name by scrolling down and click Show More.
- Select Secure Your Sites.
- Click the Certificate Name associated with your previously created Certificate Signing Request (CSR).
- Upload the Certificate Files using either one of the two methods below:

- Click Hosting Settings.
- Check SSL Support and select your newly uploaded Certificate Name in the Certificate drop down menu.
- Scroll down and click OK.
Congratulations! You've successfully installed your SSL certificate! To check your work, visit the website in your browser at https://yourdomain.tld and view the certificate/site information to see if HTTPS/SSL is working properly. Remember, you may need to restart your server for changes to take effect.
