FileZilla: CSR Creation Using OpenSSL
Use these instructions to build your own shell commands to generate your FileZilla CSR.
How To Generate a CSR for FileZilla Using OpenSSL
If you prefer, you can build your own shell commands to generate your FileZilla CSR.
- Use your terminal (ssh) to login to your FileZilla server
- At the prompt, enter the following command, making sure to replace server with the name of your server:
openssl req –new –newkey rsa:2048 –nodes –keyout server.key –out server.csr
- This starts the process for generating two files:
- The Private-Key file for the decryption of your SSL Certificate.
- A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) file, used to apply for your SSL Certificate.
Note: If you are generating a FileZilla CSR for a COMODO® Wildcard™ Certificate, your common name should begin with an asterisk (i.e. *.example.com).
Note: You may have default information set already.
This creates your OpenSSL .csr file.
