Problem generating a CSR
Posted on 2004-04-16
Background: I am trying to generate a CSR, so I can submit to our CA to obtain a cert.
My environment is: Windows2k, Apache 2.0.48 w/ OpenSSL 0.9.7c
When I type:
openssl req -new -nodes -keyout myserver.key -out server.csr
Receive the following error msg:
unable to find 'distinguished_name' in config
problems making certificate request
1440:error:0E06D06A:configuration file routines:NCONF_get_string:no string or environment variable:.\crypto\conf\conf_lib.c:325:
I realize this forum is not necessarily focused on providing Apache and/or OpenSSL support, but there doesn't seem to be one that is that I can find. So, thought I would start here and perhaps obtain some sort of direction from someone here.
Thanks to all who take this question under consideration !
