Generating a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) using IBM HTTP Server

Step 1: Create a Key Database

A key database is a file that the server uses to store one or more key pairs and certificates. You can use one key database for all your key pairs and certificates, or create multiple databases.

Note: If you are starting IKEYMAN to create a new key database file, the file is stored in the directory where you start IKEYMAN.

Step 2: Create your Certificate Signing Request

During the order process, you will be asked to "Copy & Paste" the contents of CSR file into the CSR field on the order form.
