Hello,

Im am using an SSL Certificate for my webshop to secure the payments,
but the licentie time of my SSL Certificate where running out so i tried to make an Certificate Request with directadmin like the first time.
but after i've done that normaly if you go 1 page back so back to the SSL Certificate page you have to see the RSA private key at the buttom in the textarea but this key isn't comming you still see the old RSA keyw itht he old certificate code.

Could this be fixed because i now have to do it with shh connection ?

ps. i didnt knew where to put this bug so i hope the it's at the right place here.

best regards,
Danny

Don't ever post your private key anywhere; it could result in a major security breach.

DirectAdmin reuses your private key.

That's not a problem unless you want to switch from 1024 bits to 2048 bits.

If you want to switch you should first create a self-signed Certificate, which will create a new key of the size you request.

Be sure to save the old key/cert pair so you can reinstall it if you want your old cert to continue working after you've gotten your new CSR.

And when you get your new CSR be sure to save your new private key as well; you'll need it when you install your new Certificate.
