here is the web page for my network guy's cut and paste page.
We need to generate SSL keys for the Apache server.
BElow this is a wiki style box is the following trio of
openssl commands. The second command gives me some error
messages and dies. Can anybody figure out what I need to do
to get openssl running?
# openssl genrsa -des3 -out server.key 1024
# openssl req -new -key server.key -out server.csr
# openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in /root/server.csr -signkey /root/server.key -out /root/server.crt
Then the instructions:
Copy the certs to the destination directory.
Followed by more commands to cut and paste:
# cp ~/server.key /usr/local/etc/apache22/
# cp ~/server.crt /usr/local/etc/apache22/
One other thing that is confusing is what openssl has to do
with apache. Pointers to any tutorials or other documentation
would be a huge help.
thanks in advance,
