Create CSR on Linux


  1. First generate a CSR for your domain.  The key for ssl certificate is stored in the server.key file.

    openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout server.key -out server.csr

    Be sure to enter the actual server's fully qualified name in the "Common Name" field. For example:

    If it is a wildcard certificate for all sub domains (for example for using multi tenancy), then be sure to enter *



    Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:US
    State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:
    Locality Name (eg, city) []:
    Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:
    Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) []:
    Common Name (e.g. server FQDN or YOUR name) [] or *
    Email Address []:
    Please enter the following 'extra' attributes
    to be sent with your certificate request
    A challenge password []:
    An optional company name []:



  2. Submit the CSR to your SSL provider.  They will verify and then issue a SSL certificate in a .crt file. 


After you get the SSL certificate, you can install it on your FileCloud installation by following the instructions.
