I have a issue if someone could direct me that would be great!

I have to install a SSL certificate on my dedicated server.

I have Centos 5.2 32-bit and DirectAdmin installed.

I am trying to create a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) for a COMODO EV SGC certificate it requires a 2048 bit CSR key. When I generate the key with the DirectAdmin default Generator and paste to COMODO it says KEY is to SMALL. So I am guessing I am not creating a big enough of key.

Does any know how I can change this setting to create a 2048 bit key with DirectAdmin for a domain on dedicated server?

Thanks Much!

Here is a general example on how to make a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) .. in the example just replace rsa:1024 with rsa:2048

If there are other things you need, search openssl documentation - it is the same regardless of OS.

It is built into the new version of DirectAdmin.
