Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, Createth man from a clot. Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, Who teacheth by the pen, Teacheth man that which he knew not. Nay, but verily man is rebellious That he thinketh himself independent!. Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (Sura Alalaq 96:8)

Creating and Installing Apache Self Signed Certificate

Created On: 22 Nov, 2017: 19:08:43 - Tags : web servers


To generate an Apache self signed certificate, we need to issue the command:

openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout mysitename.key -out mysitename.crt

This will generate a SSL certificate called mysitename.crt and a private key file called mysitename.key. The path to these files can be added to the Apache virtual host configuration.
