1) Generate the CSR:
openssl genrsa 2048 > yourhost.com.key
openssl req -new -key yourhost.com.key > yourhost.com.csr
2) Enter in only a couple pieces of information:
Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:US
State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:.
Locality Name (eg, city) :.
Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:Something Here
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) :.
Common Name (eg, YOUR name) :yourhost.com
Email Address :.
Please enter the following 'extra' attributes
to be sent with your certificate request
A challenge password :
An optional company name :
3) Paste the CSR into Godaddy, get back the .crt file
4) Combine the cert + godaddy chain
cat yourhost.com.crt gd_bundle.crt > yourhost.com.pem
Then in nginx:
Additionally I have these:
ssl_protocols SSLv3 TLSv1;
Helps maintain a better SSL experience, passes McAfee Secure's SSL checks, etc.
