I'm creating and installing an SSL certificate via command line for the first time and have a question.
I've created the csr via
openssl req –new –newkey rsa:2048 –nodes –keyout server.key –out server.csr
This generates a csr and private key file. After the ssl is installed, do I need to retain these files on the server? Does the creation request store the private key elsewhere or do I need to retain these?
