How do I know which certificates match which key?

Updated -

The private key contains a series of numbers. Two of those numbers form the "public key", the others are part of your "private key". The "public key" bits are also embedded in your certificate (we get them from your CSR). To check that the public key in your certificate matches the public portion of your private key, you need to view the certificate and the key and compare the numbers.
