How to generate CSR on WHM/cPanel?

Once you order a SSL certificate, you need to generate a Certificate Signature Request (CSR). Here are the steps you need to follow do generate it:

1) Create a SSL certificate:
You can generate an SSL certificate, consisting of an RSA private key and certificate, for any domain using WebHost Manager. This will allow viewers of an SSL site to verify the identity of the web site by its public key.

2) Generate a Certificate Signature Request:
Click on the Generate an SSL certificate and Signing Request link in the SSL/TLS menu. Enter the email address to send the certificate to in the 'Email Address the Cert will be sent to field'. Enter the domain name that the domain is being created for in the 'Host to make cert for field'. Enter the administration details of the certificate in the Country, State, City, Company Name, Company Division, and Email fields. Enter the password for the certificate in the Password field.
