By using the below command, I’ve created an SSL certificate. As the common name, I’ve given the IP address of the server.
openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout localhost.key -out localhost.csr
And using the below, I’ve signed by myself.
openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in localhost.csr -signkey localhost.key -out localhost.crt
After all, I’ve realized that I’m unable to use an SSL certificate with just an IP address as a common name. This way, the browser does not trust my certificate because it’s signed by me. What I want to do is to revert this process. I’d like to keep using http as I’ve been doing before. How can I remove the SSL that I’ve created in this process?
