How would you want me to reply to that post?ierick7 wrote:my bad it happens after the openssl genrsa -des3 -out server.key 1024 before I enter the passphrases.
If you still think that a self signed certificate generated by the makecert.bat file is the way to go then make sure you make a backup copy of all the ssl folders in the apache\conf folder as, without warning, they will be overwritten.Type your command
OpenSSL> genrsa -des3 -out server.key 1024 <-- you can specify a location to save the server.key file eg. C:\server.key
Loading 'screen' into random state - done
Generating RSA private key, 1024 bit long modulus
e is 65537 (0x10001) <--This informative part may appear different on your screen but the end line should be
Enter pass phrase for server.key:
Type your password which will not be reflected on screen
Verifying - Enter pass phrase for server.key:
Type your password again which will not be reflected on screen
Returns to the OpenSSL> prompt but saves the file server.key in the apache\bin folder by default or the path location you specified.
Just copy and paste this where required at the certificate issuing site and wait for the email to arrive with the rest of your certificates.
The server.key file should look similar to this from the openssl command you posted with a password I provided, so don't use this example it won't work:
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
Keep them all together in one place initially so you know where they all are.
Then transfer the individual certs to their required locations for use. This information will be provided or you can follow the localhost locations examples in xampp.
