    Hi @CM, thanks for posting.

    I'm sorry to hear about the trouble you're having with your SSL. Based on what you described, I'm not sure what might be causing the SSL to disappear after you install it. You may want to contact your hosting provider for assistance. If this is a server through GoDaddy, I suggest contacting Support so they can review your server in detail with you. Support can be reached through any of the numbers on this page:

    I'm facing the exact same issue. Do you still have this issue? If not how did you fix it?


    Exact same issue, I Complete the Certificate Request, it says Complete, it is visible on the list until I refresh the list, it just disappear.


    Any Solution?

    Ok, this was my solution:


    Install the certificate "Intermediate Certification Authorities" and then export the private key (.pfx) (right click on the cert-> all task-> export), then, instead of using "complete certificate process", just  use "import" and import the key (.pfx) and it will be available in the dropdown of your website.
