Installing SSL

Can you install the certificate and everything but not enable it until you're ready to throw the switch?
Sure, especially if running NGINX. Just include the necessary config variables, comment those lines out and when ready to rock & roll with it just uncomment those variables. When we moved from their old host to the current VPS that is what we had to do since it was a cPanel SSL setup and we had to get the certificate re-issued.
