Sorry I am a beginner about ssl cert.

according to

http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-7.0-doc/ssl-howto.html#Create_a_local_Certificate_Signing_Request_(CSR)

it will gen a keystore and CSR.

we generate the CSR and send to Certificate Authority.

What if I lost the keystore ? should I regen the CSR again to reapply the ssl cert?

Refer to https://search.thawte.com/support/ssl-digital-certificates/index?page=content&id=SO832 It will generate a new keystore file.

is it the file store the private key? which stated in https://search.thawte.com/support/ssl-digital-certificates/index?page=content&id=SO750 , which say

1. Private Key file loss.

2. Private Key pass phrase loss.

3. Private Key file has been compromised due to the server being hacked.   
......

Yeah, if you've lost the keystore then you've lost the private key.

The certificate generated from that CSR is now unusable to you, but the certificate authority should happily re-issue a new certificate if you generate a new CSR from a new private key.
