We need to put a new certificate into apache for the web interface.

1) How do we create a CSR?

Via the usual Apache Cert Request mechanism:

Generate the CSR (on Linux done via):

   openssl req -new -days 365 -key my-key-filename.key -out my-csr.csr

and answer the prompts.

   Send my-csr.csr to your Certificate Authority

Your CA may have a form to fill out for the CSR - I've never dealt with one, so I don't know.

2) Once we get the cert from the CA where do we put it?

   Enter it into Setup->HTTPS in the spaces provided..
