Regenerating an SSL Private Key


This system uses an asymmetrical (private key and public key) cryptosystem for security. Choose the key size you desire and click the Regenerate button to create your private key.

In order to regenerate an SSL Private Key, you must first clear the HTTPS Only checkbox.

Changes made to an SSL Private Key require a new CSR and SSL Server Certificate. This includes importing existing keys and regenerating new keys.

To regenerate an SSL Private Key:

  1. Log in to the Super Admin portal using your Super Admin account.

    For more information, see Logging in to the Super Admin Portal.

    The Components page displays by default.

  2. Click the Settings tab.

    The Upload System License page displays by default.

  3. Click  to the left of Security on the left menu.

  4. Click SSL Private Key from the submenu.

    The SSL Private Key page displays.

  5. Specify a 1024, 2048, or 4096 key size from the Key Size (bits) drop-down.

    Some countries or CAs limit the key size. Observe the limitations in effect in your country. Check with your CA for Key Size requirements.

  6. Click Regenerate.

    The key is then shown on the Private Key area of the screen.
