On 05/03/2015 By Eric Camille

Please follow the steps below to generate your Certificate Signing Request (CSR) with OpenSSL :

OpenSSL installation :

apt-get install openssl

SSL module activation :

sudo a2enmod ssl
sudo service apache2 force-reload

Certificate creation :

cd /etc/apache2
openssl genrsa -out my_domain_name_com.key 2048
openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -sha256 -out my_domain_name_com.csr -key my_domain_name_com.key
openssl req -text -noout -in my_domain_name_com.csr

Once these steps are completed, you can check your new CSR with Apache OpenSSL.
