Post How to add SSL certs to my dynamic servers?
Thursday, May 18, 2017 1:34:46 PM

I have recently purchased a SSL cert on, now I'm stuck at providing the CSR, I'm not sure how to go further from here. Basically this is my current setup:

I have multiple servers connected to my home router which serves as the port forwarding hub, like:

1) 5983 - internal IP (CouchDB running on Ubuntu Server)
2) 5984 - internal IP (Another CouchDB)

The question is, where do I generate the CSR for both use? or how to do it?

Appreciate your soon reply.

You can create CSR from Ubuntu using OpenSSL. Once you create a CSR, please hold on to the private key. Once we process your SSL certificate and provide you the SSL certificate, you can then use the certificate and private keys on both devices at the same time. Essentially, once you have a set of certificate and private key, you can convert it into various formats and utilize it with many devices for SSL communication.

openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout -out
