The private key should be in pem format, but what format is the actual certificate?  As Hem pointed you to that kb, please go through it to make sure you have followed all the steps.  The private key also should be decrypted (no password).

Hi 

The solution is to convert private.key to pkcs12 format and set out password with openssl. Then enter server.pem and the converted private.p12 with password - and it works !
