How do I create DigitalOcean CSR, for use in

I was trying to obtain a free SSL Cert for use in my domain which I have hosted on DigitalOcean, however, I was unable to get the CSR required for the SSL to work. Can anybody help me on this? I have seen solutions for RapidSSL and Godaddy but nothing for I don’t want to change my hosting provider to and/or purchase RapidSSL from them.

Thank you.

There’s not going to be a tutorial that specific, but the process is relative. There is a tutorial that you can use here:

Hope that helps :)
