godaddy sent a crt file when my ssl certificate expired and renewed. How do I get that into one of my apps?

    answer: create a .pfx file.

    if you have lost your private key, create a csr:

    openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout app.key -out app.csr

    copy the contents and generate the request on godaddy.

    Wait until the request is approved and download your certificate as a zip-file. I chose Other as a server. Rename the provided .crt file to app.crt

    Now generate the .pfx, using the private key you have saved.

    openssl pkcs12 -export -out app.pfx -inkey app.key -in app.crt

    It will ask for a passphrase, add it and remember it. upload the .pfx, name the certificate
    and add the passphrase. This is what worked for me.
