    It will need installing on your server so consult your server person, hosting company or hosting control panel.

    It really depends on your host and server set up.

    You will either need shell access to your server and install it in Linux, log on to your host's cPanel / WHM or other Control Panel or ask your host to do it for you.

    Installing an SSL certificate is not a straight forward task.

    It's not just a case of copying it to a directory on your server.

    You will need to have direct access to run terminal commands on your server.

    You will then also need to configure Apache to listen for requests on port 443.

    If none of this makes sense, you will need to speak to your hosts, who will be able to provide more detailed support.

    It really isn't a XenForo thing.

    I copied the keys to the relevant apache2 directory and added the details to the apache config file
