Subject: Openssl - unable to load from /usr/local/ssl/openssl.cnf on win nt
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 718b
I am using the latest - openssl-devel-0.9.7f version of
openssl(win32) for linking with paypal sandbox. My problem is i have to
generate public certificate and upload to paypal web site. To do that i
need to follow 2 steps
openssl genrsa -out ..\..\cert\%1-prvkey.pem 1024
This goes smoothly.

openssl req -new -key ..\..\cert\%1-prvkey.pem -x509 -days 365 -
out ..\..\cert\%1-pubcert.pem

When i run this, it gives me error saying "unable to load config info
from /usr/local/ssl/openssl.cnf. Why it is referring to unix path
eventhough i have compiled for winnt using vc++. Have i missed some
config. during creation? Why i am getting this error? CAn u please help
me out. It's urgent!!!!!

With regards

1st step :
c:\openssl\bin>openssl genrsa -out myprvkey.pem 1024
2nd step :
i think this solves the problem to create the pulic certificate using openssl.
jus type this
c:\openssl\bin>openssl req -config c:\openssl\bin\openssl.cnf -new -key myprvkey.pem -x509 -days 365 -out mypubcert.pem
