Hi @rckonda

also a welcome to the Atlassian community.

First of all, you need to get a new certificate, probably from the same source you got it last time. If you don't know where that is or want to switch, I can recommend Let's Encrypt.

If you have your certificate, it really depends on the setup you have for your Confluence Server/Data Center.

  • In case you have a load balancer like an nginx or Apache in front of your Confluence, you'd need to configure SSL on that level. There's also plenty of resources out there for these cases, e.g. Nginx and Apache.
  • If you don't have a load balancer and directly access Confluence, go with what @Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_ said.

Hope that helps,
