Question: How do I create a CSR for an NGINX server?

Answer:

You can use Open SSL to create your CSR for an NGINX server.

Run the following command:

openssl req -new -nodes -keyout private.key -out server.csr

You will get 2 output files:

private.key: This is your private key. You should store this on the server in safe location. You will need it when you install the certificate
server.csr: This is your Certificate Signing Request. This is the information you will submit to Entrust for certificate creation.
