I have been sent two txt files from somebody who used to maintain a website for a client.
One contains the certificate from Thawte with:
---BEGIN CERTIFICATE--- xxxxxxxx ---END CERTIFICATE---
The other contains the RSA Private Key
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY----- xxxxxxxx -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
I've got the Certificate imported to Windows Server 2008, using the MMC snap-in, but it doesn't have the matching Private Key.
Is there anyway to create and install the private key from the second text file? Or do I need to create a new CSR request, and get a new certificate?
I'd rather create it from what has been sent if possible, just because I don't have access to the Thawte site to login, and the previous developer lives in the US and can be slow to respond. My client is in a rush to have the SSL up and running again.
I've not found an answer online, so guessing I have to generate a new request?
Any help greatly appreciated.
