    Hi all,

    how can I create SSL certificates with OpenSSL on the command line. I googled a little bit, but this is all very confusing to me so I'd appreciate a clear set of instructions... :D

    Something like this should work:

    Code:
    openssl genrsa -des3 -passout pass:yourpassword -out /path/to/your/key_file 1024
    openssl req -new -passin pass:yourpassword -passout pass:yourpassword -key /path/to/your/key_file -out /path/to/your/csr_file -days 365
    openssl req -x509 -passin pass:yourpassword -passout pass:yourpassword -key /path/to/your/key_file -in /path/to/your/csr_file -out /path/to/your/crt_file -days 365
    openssl rsa -passin pass:yourpassword -in /path/to/your/key_file -out /path/to/your/key_file2
    chmod 400 /path/to/your/key_file2
