Every time I attempt to install an SSL certificate, this error shows up: The certificate you have entered does not match the current private key.
I suspect this is because I was using a self signed certificate prior to this error, and it was fine, however the
untrusted message from most browsers made me decide to go with a different certificate. I tried to install as usual however I still have the same private key from before. Would the cause be that my private key is still linked to the old self signed certificate? I am sorry if I am not making sense I only know programming.
Thank you for replying. I used ZeroSSL, and yes, I correctly completed the CNAME steps. I was told by the program that the CNAME step was complete and it gave me my certificate and private key. Also just to clear up some potential confusion, yes, I used the private key that ZeroSSL gave me and yes, I used the correlated certificate.
The private key you have uploaded matches the private key of your ZeroSSL certificate in the client area. But the SSL certificate shown in the client area actually doesn’t match the private key shown right beside it.
I have no idea what happened here. Maybe something went wrong in the client area code, maybe something went wrong at ZeroSSL. I really have no idea.
It also seems like two certificates have been reported by ZeroSSL, but none of the certificates matches the private key in the client area: crt.sh | affinityscreening.rf.gd
I’ve never seen this before.
The only thing I can recommend right now is to simply request a new certificate. Hopefully it will work correctly this time and give you a correct key and certificate.
