I'm trying to get a SSL server cert installed.  The information I have says:

To assign a server certificate to a Web site:
1. In IIS Manager, expand the local computer, and then expand the Web Sites
folder.
2. Right-click the Web site or file that you want, and then click
Properties.  Depending on whether you are configuring a Web site or a file,
select either the Directory Security or File Security tab, and under Secure
communications, click Server Certificate.

The problem is that the "Server Certificate" button is grayed out.  I went
through this once, but the cert was wrong and I deleted it.  Now I don't
seem to be able to repeat the process.

I've restarted the HTTP SSL service, but it made no difference.

Can someone give me a few pointers on how to get the Server Certificate
wizard running again?

Thanks,
Dean
