Default Standard SSL of OVH and ISPConfig


OVH has two types of certificates:
  • Standard (cheap, only two fields: name of country and domain)
  • Business (more expensive, all fields)
In the case of standard certificate of OVH:

If I create it with the 5 fields in ISPConfig, is rejected by OVH:
Subject is not the expected subject, you request for: commonName=mydomain.com/countryName=ES/localityName=MyCity/organizationName=MyCompany/stateOrProvinceName=MyProvince
Please make a request with the subject: commonName=mydomain.com/countryName=ES

And if I try to create a standard certificate in ISPConfig with (only) 2 fields, I get the following error:
SSL State/Province is empty
SSL town is empty
SSL Organization is empty
SSL organizational unit is empty

Is there any way to create a standard certificate with ISPConfig? That is, that only have two fields: country name and domain.

Thanks and greetings,

Quite funny that ovh requests to create a incomplete ssl request. All ssl authorities that I know work fine with the requestst created by ispconfig.

ISPconfig has currently no option to create incomplete certs, so you might have to create a request manually or use a different ssl authorities that accepts standard compliant requests.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
