Q.  I just renew by SSL certificate.  Now what do I do?

A.  There is very little to do.

Assuming you have been successfully using an old certificate for
a year or more.  You just need to replace your old example.com.crt
with your new example.com.crt file in the folder where it lives
(for me that's /etc/pki/example.com).
And restart the services that use it.  And, of course, give the
services a try.

There is no need to remove the key or anything else.
