if I reset my WordPress site and start over, can I reinstall the same ssl certificate?

If I need to reset my word press site to start over from scratch, can I uninstall and then reinstall the same ssl certificate or would I have to buy another one? I will be using it for the same domain, just trying to see if I can do this before starting the site over.

If you are getting a new server you may just have to "re-key" the certificate. That said the certificate is independent of the WordPress installation itself - so if you are deleting the WordPress folder / database and just doing a clean install the SSL is not affected by that.
