1. Create RSA Private Key and CSR pair.
    -> openssl req -new -nodes -keyout myserver.key -out server.csr

Note: Replace 'myserver.key' and 'server.csr' with names that are more descriptive to you.

2. Follow Prompts.
Note: If you need more information about the prompts then please see our KB Article on Apache CSR Generation thru OpenSSL
