SSL issuer certificate not found after installation

Ouch! With Go Daddy Certificates: I ran into this issue on a server when trying to apply a new Certificate and its intermediate Certificates The issue seemed to be from not having a complete Certificate Chain installed in my servers Certificate Store.

The solution to fix this issue was simple. Download and install the root bundles from here or here:

This in no way is the fault of Go Daddy; the Server I am hosting on; Server 2003 lacks the much needed certificate store updates so it doesn’t know about the newer root CA’s.

That said; Go Daddy is still the best in my book
