Create CSR & private key with OpenSSL for SHA256 SSL certificate
Posted by PremiumReseller on 11 January 2016 09:53 PM

Install Open SSL on Windows server e.g. C:\OpenSSL-Win32

Open command prompt and change home directory to OpenSSL bin folder e.g. C:\OpenSSL-Win32\bin

Run command to generate CSR and private key

openssl req -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -sha256 -keyout C:\OpenSSL\yourdomain.com.key -out C:\OpenSSL\yourdomain.com.csr

OpenSSL will ask you to provide ssl certificate details like country, state, city, company name, domain name ...

After private key and CSR are generated, use CSR to order SSL certificate.

After you receive ssl certificate, install private key and ssl certificate together on server.
