Here before the SSL configuration, we should need to generate the CSR key from that environment which is our target environment in our case, that was EC2-Instance with Linux Environment. We have installed the OpenSSL on to that Linux environment.
For creating the CSR you should need to have OpenSSL installed on your system.
We used the below command to create a CSR file with key,
Note: Please create one folder and open the terminal to that folder only.
You can also follow this video tutorial for the same
openssl req -out devaten.csr -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout devaten.key
Once I executed this command it will ask for the company details,
here you need to provide the same details which you have mentioned while creating the SSL certificate.
Here we should need to provide one important information.
If we are creating the CSR file for the wild card the for “Common Name” property we should need to provide the proper information
Common Name = *devaten.com (in Our case)
This will be matched the requirement which you have mentioned while purchasing.
Once you done with all the details you will have 2 files in your same folder
- CSR file
- Key file
Here you have complete the 2nd Process. Lets move forward with 3rd process.
