Before you can request your SSL, you must generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) From your server. When you have completed generating your CSR, cut/copy and paste it into the CSR field on the SSL certificate-request page.

To Generate a Certificate Signing Request for lighttpd

  1. Log in to your server's terminal (SSH).
  2. At the prompt, type the following command:
    openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout yourdomain.key -out yourdomain.csr

    Note: Replace yourdomain with the domain name you're securing. For example, if your domain name is coolexample.com, you would type coolexample.key and coolexample.csr.

  3. Enter the requested information:
    • Common Name: The fully-qualified domain name, or URL, you want to secure.
      If you are requesting a Wildcard certificate, add an asterisk (*) to the left of the common name where you want the wildcard, for example *.coolexample.com.

      Note: If you do not want to enter a password for this SSL, you can leave the Passphrase field blank. However, please understand there might be additional risks.

  4. Open the CSR in a text editor and copy all of the text.
  5. Paste the full CSR into the SSL enrollment form in your account.
