Hi Conway,

All depends on your server setup. If you have Tomcat 'behind' Apache, NginX
or IIS you should generate csr and install certificate on those software
which is on front of Tomcat. If you have only Tomcat on the server you
should familiarize with Tomcat+SSL guides. As a example you can take
following blog entry:
http://linuxadmin.com.pl/index.php/tomcat-and-ssl-certificates-small-how-to/

CSR is generated per certificate, so if you have another ssl certificate for
sure you will need to create another csr.

Best Regards

Subject: Creating CSR for Purchasing SSL Certificate from VeriSign

Hi,



We are running a Tomcat website on Windows 2008 R2. The SSL certificate for
this website has expired. Instead of renewing the SSL certificate from the
current SSL provider, we want to buy new SSL certificate from VeriSign.



We are aware that we need to first generate a Certificate Signing Request.
I've landed on this page:

https://knowledge.verisign.com.au/support/ssl-certificates-support/index?pag
e=content
<https://knowledge.verisign.com.au/support/ssl-certificates-support/index?pa
ge=content&id=AR235> &id=AR235



This page has a list of links for the instructions of different types
server. My question is, should I go for Apache (ApacheSSL mod_ssl ),
Microsoft (Windows 2008 - IIS 7.0), or Tomcat (Tomcat)?



Also, if we later add another Tomcat site (with a different domain name) on
the same Windows 2008 R2 server,  do we have to generate another CSR to
purchase another SSL certificate?





Any suggestion is very much appreciated.



Conway Liu
