4. Restart Website through IIS.

Note: If you're page is still showing certificate errors, one may have to stop and start the website or even the IIS Service itself. If this fails one may have to restart the server itself. Do keep in mind that rebooting the server is to be used as a last resort. Please contact support if you require further assistance.
