Generating a CSR: Server Instructions

When you are going to request your certificate, you must first create a Certificate Signing Request, or ‘CSR’ on your server that will contain the information needed to tell the SSL which addresses are being secured. Each server has its own unique way of requesting this CSR, but it is a necessary step regardless of what system you’re running on

The specific generation procedure is determined by your choice of Web server software. CSR generation instructions are available for the Web servers listed on this page.
