I need a CSR for my site longboardfunds.com


#1

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: longboardfunds.com

I ran this command: NA

It produced this output: NA

My web server is (include version): NA

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): NA

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Adobe Business Catalyst

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): NA

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

I assume you mean that you need a certificate. (A CSR, or Certificate Signing Request, is like an application for a CA-signed certificate.) Have you checked out the Getting Started Page?

Hi @CATKINS,

In this case it appears that your hosting provider needs to help you with this process. Adobe Business Catalyst does not appear to offer the kind of access that would allow you to do this for yourself.

I read conflicting things about the availability of support for HTTPS on a custom domain on this hosting provider, but they made an announcement earlier that it would be available during 2017:

https://www.businesscatalyst.com/bc-blog/welcome-to-the-new-face-of-business-catalyst

So you should ask the hosting provider’s support about the status of this. Although you can obtain a third-party certificate (such as a Let’s Encrypt certificate) for your site without the hosting provider’s help, you won’t be able to install it without the hosting provider’s permission and/or assistance, so it wouldn’t do you any good.

If Adobe Business Catalyst isn’t able to allow you to use HTTPS on a custom domain, you could consider any of the hosting providers listed in the thread at

By the way, a CSR is a “certificate signing request” which is a kind of document used in some workflows as part of the process of obtaining a certificate. You won’t necessarily need to use a CSR directly; what you’re probably looking for is the certificate. :slight_smile:

Hi Jared

I a m hosting my site with Adobe Business Catalyst (they list “Let’s Encrypt” as Certificate Authority). now the registrar of the domain is GoDaddy for which I am pointing my domain “Longboardfunds.com” from. I have an open SSL spot there and all they require is a CSR from Adobe or in this case the Certificate Authority. So my DNS is externally hosted.

I would like to keep this setup as to not disturb configurations on 3 other sites on the domain. Please let me know if this makes sense and if Let’s Encrypt can help.

Are you sure about the “CSR” part? That seems like it could be a mistake and they might want a certificate rather than a CSR.

I am 100% sure regarding the CSR. GoDaddy is now requiring from the host.

OK, only the hosting provider can create the CSR because it requires access to the private key that will be used. The CSR must be signed by the private key.
