Alternatively you can choose the domain from the drop down list and manually enter the certificate and the private key.
If the system is not able to find your private key, you can find it in the section Private Keys (KEY) in the SSL/TLS Manager.
If the private key is missing, you can generate a new CSR code and a new private key and then reissue your SSL certificate
