Make a Private Key

  1. Login to the WebSTAR server using the WebSTAR admin client.
  2. Go to the Tools menu and select 'Generate Keys and CSRs'.
  3. Type a name for your private key file.
  4. Type a password. This password will be used for protecting your private key. Make sure that you keep this password in a secure place because you will need it later.

  4. Enter the password you used when you created your private key.
  5. Click 'Generate CSR'.
  6. Create a new text file and save the contents of the output to the text file. Make sure to give the file a .txt extension.
  7. You can now open your CSR file with a text editor. Copy and paste the entire certificate to the DigiCert order form. Make sure to include the begin and end tags.
  8. After you receive your SSL Certificate from DigiCert, you can install it.
