How to create a certificate request with 2048 Bit
NetMan and HAN allow to create a certificate request or self-signed certificates over the corresponding control in the Control Panel. However these requests have a fix length a 1024 Bit only.
A certificate request with 2048 Bit (or more) have to be created manually with Netman up to version 4.5.x and HAN 2.3.2. Please load the following ZIP file: myssl.zip
Unzip the arcive within a new subfolder myssl in ..\WebSrv\ssl
- The file server_req.cfg allows to define the FQDN of the server etc. (all entries ending with ..._default).
- Createreq.bat creates a new certificate request with 2048 Bit.
The CSR file can be verified with e certicficate decoder, e.g. http://www.redkestrel.co.uk/cgi/decodeCSR.pl
- Makecert.bat creates a new self-signed certificate with 2048 Bit.
Copy the new server.key and server.crt into the ssl folder:
- Stop the web service.
- Rename the existing files.
- Copy the new files.
- Restart the web service.
