Hello everyone, Brandon here from the Docebo Support team! I'd like to share this short guide on troubleshooting your SSL certificates for HTTPS upload and how to fix any chain issues you are experiencing.

This guide will assume that you already have the HTTPS and Custom Domain apps installed as well as your Certificate, Intermediate Certificate, and Key files after providing a generated CSR with your domain provider.

Thank you for this. I helped me solve my problem, but needed a bit more clarity. 

In order to correctly install your certificate chain in Docebo, you’ll need to edit the .pem certificate and separate it into two files - one for the certificate, and one for the intermediate & root certificate.

In a text editor, copy the FIRST certificate block (between ------BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and -----END CERTIFICATE-----) into a new file, save as <yourcertificate>.pem.

Next, copy the NEXT TWO BLOCKS (these are your intermediate and root certificates) and paste into a new file, save as <yourintermediatecert>.pem (note: I renamed this file to .crt in my case).

Now, upload your new <yourcertificate>.pem, your .key file, and then <yourintermediatecert>.pem (or .crt) and save.
