Again, the only real thing that needs to match is the modulus on both 
the key and certificate (outside of setting up a proper VHost, of 
course). I assume you downloaded the wrong certificate from the CA(Very 
common). You could always generate a new key and CSR and send that CSR 
to the CA, who then will send you a new certificate.
