So, we decided to take the jump and give Windows Server 2016 a try.

An SSL Certificate was installed on our current Windows Server 2012. If we upgrade this server to Windows Server 2016,

a. will the SSL still work?

b. is there anything that has to be done prior to upgrading?


In short what are the steps to re-use the SSL Certificate on an upgraded Windows Machine ? will the SSL Certificate be maintained in the upgrade process ?

That's a great question to ask server admin since they work directly with server maintenance. I would think it would carry over since you're upgrading the framework, and not doing anything else. You might need to make a couple manual changes in your php files, but I doubt it. Let me know how it turns out.
