In this tutorial, I will teach you how to Install GoDaddy SSL Certificate on Google Cloud(Debian) by Bitnami.

Step 1 Generate Private Key and Certificate Signing Request

1 Log in to your terminal server(SSH).

At the prompt, type the following command to generate private key and csr:

sudo openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout exampledomain.key -out exampledomain.csr

Note: Replace yourdomain with the domain name you’re securing. For example, if your domain name is, you would type exampledomain.key and exampledomain.csr.

And then complete the form.

Country Name (2 letter code) [XX]: US
State or Province Name (full name) []: California
Locality Name (eg, city) [Default City]: Los Angeles
Organization Name (eg, company) [Default Company Ltd]: Chris Mendez Inc. 
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) []: I SKIP THIS
Common Name (eg, your name or your server's hostname) []:
