I am moving my app into production and need help in generating CSR. I created a private key and followed these steps:
- Created private key
- Entered passphrase for it (
openssl genrsa -des3 -out domainname.key 1024)
- Created CSR (
openssl req -new -key domainname.key -out domainname.csr)
- In the CSR, I entered all the info. Common name was in format:
XX.XXX.XXX:3000, where X is number.
Finally, I generated the CSR, but at this stage my application is on a remote server with IP address
http://XX.XXX.XXX.XXX:3000/ and on
thawte.com when generating the trial SSL it shows me the error:
The Common Name in the CSR is invalid.
Has anyone had a similar task and can advise me what I have done wrong?
Second question: What server can you recommend to me and accordingly what Web Platform (when generating SSL) I should choose in the list ?
