HELP! - Generating a Certificate Signing Request (CSR)

Postby jardinec » 27. January 2004 21:10

Has anyone sucessfully generated a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) using openssl.

I have XAMPP installed and running successfully, which is great, but i need to get a proper certificate installed:

I have tried the command:

openssl req –new –nodes -keyout myserver.key –out server.csr

but this could not find the config file so then i tried:

openssl req -config e:\path\to\ssl.conf –new –nodes -keyout myserver.key –out server.csr

But now i get another error. Can anyone help me with this as it is urgent"!"

put all yor files in the same directory so no path is needed, then attempt to build your cert. additionally i think but am not sure, if you dont specify a config file it will prompt you to fill in the blanks anyway. also there is a sample that comes with wampp on creating a server cert, but i dont know about signing a cert request. all i can say is google.
