Plesk Server Administrator 6 CSR Creation


Generating a Certificate Signing Request

To generate a certificate signing request (CSR) follow these steps:

  1. At the Certificate repository page, click on the ADD button. The certificate creation page will open.
  2. Specify the certificate name.
  3. The Bits selection allows you to choose the level of encryption of your SSL certificate. Select the appropriate number from the drop-down list.
  4. Select a country from the drop-down list
  5. Specify the state or province, location (city).
  6. Enter the appropriate organization name and department/division in the field provided.
  7. Enter the Domain Name for which you wish to generate the certificate signing request.
  8. Click the REQUEST button. A certificate signing request will be generated and added to the repository. You will be able to add the other certificate parts later on.

Note: Do not lose your RSA Private Key, you will need this later.

Generating a CSR using an existing private key

In some cases you have a certificate in the repository, which has only the private key part and the other parts are missing due to some reasons. To generate a new Certificate Signing Request using the existing private key, follow these steps:

  1. At the certificate repository page, select from the list a certificate, which has the private key part only. You will be taken to the SSL certificate properties page.
  2. Click REQUEST.
