(4) First: ‘Upload certificate files’; press the ‘Browse’ button and find the location of your primary certificate (for example YourDomainName.CRT) which you recently extracted on your Plesk Server Directory. Now select this Primary certificate and click on ‘Send File’ button. This function will install you primary certificate with its correlated private key.

Note: In certificate drop-down box if there are no SSL certificates listed, it means that you are using a shared hosting account, and to install SSL certificate you must need a dedicated non-shared IP address. So upgrade your hosting package with non-shared IP and follow the above procedure to install SSL.
