Setting up SSL on iFolder 3.7 with AD

I am trying to setup an SSL connection between our iFolder 3.7 server and our Active Directory server. I am running through the simias-server-setup script and when it comes time for the certificate to be given to the iFolder server I get an error:

Installing certificate from ldaps://AD Server/...
Ldap certificate :

We have revoked this cert and generated a new one but iFolder still seems to want this particular cert. How does iFolder decide what certificate it wants if there are multiple certs on the box? Is this a setting I can change? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I can get iFolder to work fine if I do not setup LDAP to be secure.

I am tying to figure this out. I need to use my GoDaddy SSL information but I can't figure out how.
