  • Hi, everyone. I have a problem about https in CP. I take create CA(x.509) and private key to insert in dialog on CP. But my key isn't working.

    Please guide me to create CA & Private key and how to use it.

    thanks for help and sorry about my poor English.

  • You should be able to use any general guide for creating a self signed certificate.  Just google for "creating a self signed ssl certificate".  You'll get a ton of hits that are pretty detailed.
