This document provides instructions how to generate certificate signing request (CSR) for Apple Mac OS X Server 10.7. If this document can not be used on the server, please contact Apple Support.

Back up your Private Key
RapidSSL recommends backing up the .key file and storing of the corresponding pass phrase. A good choice is to create a copy of this file onto a removable media. While backing up the private key is not required, having one will be helpful in the instance of server failure.
During the verification process, RapidSSL may need to contact your organization. Be sure to provide an email address, phone number and fax number that will be checked and responded to quickly. These fields are not part of the certificate.
Once the certificate has been issued, refer to this link for installation instructions.
