The following instructions will guide you through the CSR generation process on Nginx (OpenSSL).
Here is the plain text version to copy and paste into your terminal:openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout server.key -out server.csr
Note: Replace "server" with the domain name you intend to secure.
Note: You are not required to enter a password or passphrase. This optional field is for applying additional security to your key pair.
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE REQUEST-----
-----END CERTIFICATE REQUEST-----
Note 1: Your CSR should be saved in the same user directory that you SSH into unless otherwise specified by you.
Note 2: We recommend saving or backing up your newly generate “.key” file as this will be required later during the installation process.
