Powercode CentOS servers use an Apache ssl certificate (https if it is specified). To generate an SSL certificate you will require a CSR file (Certificate Signing Request). You will also require a private Key. This guide helps you create both in case you do not have either.
SSH into your Billing Server and run the following commands to generate a CSR and Private Key:
openssl req -out CSR.csr -new -newkey rsa:4096 -nodes -keyout privateKey.key openssl rsa -in privateKey.key -out newPrivateKey.key
You will need to know the following information:
- Country Name (2 letter code)
- State or Province Name (full name)
- Locality Name (eg, city)
- Organization Name (eg, company)
- Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) (or department, ie Engineering, Sales, etc)
- Common Name (your server’s domain name, see note)
- Email Address
After this you should see a file named CSR.csr in the folder you executed the commands in. You then can submit this CSR to your Certificate Authority to receive the Certificate files from them.
If you are confident in your ability you may install the SSL certificate yourself. Otherwise please contact Powercode support and we can perform the installation for you.
