Create New SSL Certificate for FileCloud on Windows
Step 0: Download OpenSSL
To create a SSL certificate, you can use the openssl included in FileCloud folder. (The location is c:\xampp\apache\bin)
Step 1: Create Private Server Key
If your SSL provider does not accept key lengths of 2048, a higher length of 4096 can be used in the above command.
Step2: Create a Certificate Request (CSR)
Notes: Type in the same passphrase used in Step 1.
Be sure to enter the actual server's fully qualified name in the "Common Name" field. For example: filecloud.yourdomain.com
If it is a wildcard certificate for all subdomains (for example for using multi tenancy), then be sure to enter *.yourdomain.com
For Common Name enter the URL of your site.
Step 3: Remove the passphrase from key
Apache won't start up properly if the key is secured with passphrase, so we need to remove it.
Step 4: Submit the CSR to SSL provider
Upload and submit the CSR file's contents to the SSL signing authority (like GoDaddy, Thawte) etc.
They will sign and give you a ssl certificate usually called as server.crt.
After you get the SSL certificate, you can install it on your FileCloud installation by following the instructions.
