Hi, Yes you need to generate the CSR and the Private key at the server side. Himalayan Hosting

Do we need to generate the CSR and the Private key at the server side?

Generate a CSR and private key

openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout yourdomain.key -out yourdomain.csr

Common Name: The fully-qualified domain name, or URL, you’re securing. If you are requesting a Wildcard certificate, add an asterisk (*) to the left of the common name where you want the wildcard, for example * Organization: The legally-registered name for your business. If you are enrolling as an individual, enter the certificate requestor’s name. Organization Unit: If applicable, enter the DBA (doing business as) name. City or Locality: Name of the city where your organization is registered/located. Do not abbreviate. State or Province: Name of the state or province where your organization is located. Do not abbreviate. Country: The two-letter International Organization for Standardization (ISO) format country code for where your organization is legally registered. Decode a CSR

openssl req -in server.csr -noout -text
