CSR Generation Instruction - Orion Web Server

An Important Note Before You Start

By far the most common problem users have when going through this process is related to private keys. If you lose or cannot access a private key, you cannot use the certificate we issue to you and will need to request a free reissue. To ensure this never happens, we advise that a backup of the private key file is made and that a note is made of the password that is used to protect the export of the private key.

Orion Webserver Keygen Instructions

Creating a keystore with a certificate:

1. keytool -genkey -keyalg "RSA" -keystore keystore -storepass 123456 -validity 360

2. keytool -certreq -keyalg "RSA" -file my.host.com.csr -keystore keystore

3. Submit your CSR to Thawte.

4. paste the certificate once issued into my.host.com.cer

5. keytool -keystore keystore -keyalg "RSA" -import -trustcacerts -file my.host.com.cer

You should now have a keystore file in your current directory

Creating a secure site:

1. Copy the default-web-site.xml config in the /config directory to secure-web-site.xml and edit it.

2. Add secure="true" as an attribute to the tag.

3. Add the keystore to the main body.

4. Install the site, this is done by adding %lt;web-site path="./secure-web-site.xml" /> the site to server.xml.
