How do I create SSL certificates with OpenSSL on the command line?

You do it like this:

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
