The following instructions can be applied to the versions 6, 7 and 8 of Plesk.

1- Generate the certificate request

Login as administrator to the control panel and click on Server Management.

Click on Certificates > Add a certificate

Fill in the form (see instructions here: obtain a server certificate. Name the certificate and select a key length ( 2048-bit at least).

Click Request. Plesk will then generate a private key and the associated CSR. It usually sends an e-mail containing the private key and the certificate. Save it.

Then go back to the Certificates page. Click on the certificate that you just requested (at the bottom).
