    I've renewed an existing SSL certificate I registered with Godaddy but I am a bit confused how to complete the renewal process for the SSL certificate on my server.

    Godaddy is asking for a Certificate Signing Request (CSR).

    In WHM when I go to SSL Key/Crt Manager it lists the Key and Certificate but no CSR.

    In WHM do I have to use the "Generate a SSL Certificate and Signing Request" and make a new one and use that to finish the renewal?

    I am confused.

    I believe what you have suggested is correct, that it will be necessary to generate a new Certificate Signing Request or "CSR." A new CSR should allow completion of the SSL certificate order or renewal process at the issuing Certificate Authority (CA) or applicable SSL vendor (e.g., Godaddy).

    A new Certificate Signing Request (CSR) may be generated via either of the following two menu paths:
