    Hello,

    There is no "Generate an SSL Certificate and Signing Request" screen in the cpanel DNS-Only version.

    How can we create CSR and RSA keys so we can setup ssl for the WHM?

    Thanks.

    Hello :)

    You can generate a CSR and Key with the following command:

    Code:
    # openssl req -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout domain.com.key -out domain.com.csr
    Simply replace "domain.com" with the domain name of your choice. The .key and .csr files will be created in the directory that you run the command from.

    Thank you.

    Thanks. I ended up created the CSR and RSA keys using a different cpanel server. Then I just pasted them into the install ssl cert install screen on the dns-only server.

    Thanks.
