SSL certificates not copied over to upgrade site
Answer ID 8911   |   Last Review Date 02/26/2019

Why are customizations using SSL not working on my upgrade site?


Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificates, All product versions


If a customization uses SSL certificates located in a site's '/bin/dll' directory they will not be copied over to an upgrade site. Further, the '/bin/dll' directory location is not accessible by customers, and therefore placing certificate files for such uses in this directory is not recommended.

Instead, certificates should rather be located in the site's '/cgi-bin/[site name].db/certs/' directory. For further details please see
