How to Create a Self-Signed SSL Certificate on CentOS
Filed under: Technical Support

An SSL certificate is an electronic ‘document’ that is used to bind together a public security key and a website’s identity information (such as name, location, etc.) by means of a digital signature. The ‘document’ is issued by a certificate provider such as GlobalSign, Verisign, GoDaddy, Comodo, Thawte, and others. For more information, visit the article: What is an SSL Certificate?

In this article we’re going to be covering how to create a self-signed SSL certificate and assign it to a domain in Apache. Self-signed SSL certificates add security to a domain for testing purposes, but are not verifiable by a third-party certificate provider. Thus, they can result in web browser warnings.

Pre-Flight Check
  • These instructions are intended for creating a self-signed SSL certificate and assigning it to a domain in Apache.
  • I’ll be working from a Liquid Web Core Managed CentOS 6.5 server, and I’ll be logged in as root.
