I bought an SSL certificate from godaddy.com. My website is hosted on Google Cloud Portal (GCP). I generated the private rsa key using the methods provided on the GCP support website.
First I generated a private key and a CSR using the below commands
openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout yourdomain.key -out yourdomain.csr
Then i created an rsa key for google cloud platform
openssl rsa -in yourdomain.key -out yourdomain.key.pem
Then I copied the csr text to godaddy and generated a certificate. From the merchant site, I downloaded the certificate. Before downloading the certificate, there was an option to select 'Server Type'. Following options were present:
- Mac OS X
I selected "Other" and clicked 'Download'. A zip file was downloaded that had two files:
To install the certificate, I went to GCP App Engine > Settings > SSL Certificate > Upload a new Certificate. There are two text boxes:
- PEM encoded X.509 public key certificate
- Unencrypted PEM encoded RSA private key
I copied the RSA private key from step-1, into the 2nd text box. Now the problem is that the 1st text box (where I have to enter the public key) is not accepting any of the files present in the certificate zip folder that I downloaded from the merchant site. I get the error
The Certificate data is invalid. Please ensure that the private key and public certificate match
I tried copying either of the files to the 1st text box. I also copied both the file texts into the box. But nothing is working. Please help!
