Subject Re: [users@httpd] ssl on apache
Date Thu, 07 May 2009 08:20:34 GMT

Hi

Let’s start from 0:

I am following http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/ssl/ssl_faq.html to create a real certificate.
openssl genrsa -des3 -out server.key 1024
openssl req -new -key server.key -out server.csr

now I need to send server.csr to the root CA to sign it. I should expect a certificate called
server.crt. Correct?

Then I use this server.crt and the server.key in apache. Correct?

Thank you
