Create a Certificate Signing Request for Nginx Server
To generate a CSR with Nginx Server using OpenSSL, please follow these steps:
1. Log in to your server via SSH. Type: openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout server.key -out server.csr where server is the name of your server.
2. The private Key and CSR will be generated.
3. When asked for Common Name, enter the Fully-Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) for the site you are securing (e.g. vpn.domain.com). Then, fill in your organisation information. Your .csr file will be created.
4. Open the CSR file and copy/paste the entire contents (including the BEGIN and END tags) into our order form.
