CSR genearaton with COMODO

I generated CSR with Cloudflare. When I was uploading that CSR to Comodo, error message appeared “This CSR cannot be decoded! Please contact Support”. After that I contacted Comodo support, they said that’s CSR, That’s certificate and contact Cloudflare for CSR. CSR should be within -----BEGIN NEW CERTIFICATE REQUEST----- and -----END NEW CERTIFICATE REQUEST-----. but my CSR within -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and -----END CERTIFICATE-----. That’s why it’s wrong. So where can I generate CSR on Cloudflare?

Cloudflare does not generate a CSR for you, it generates a full certificate on that page (but it’s only for Cloudflare <-> server, and won’t work in browsers if your DNS record is not proxied, :grey:).

If you’re trying to get a custom certificate on CF, custom certificates are only allowed on the business/enterprise plans and require you generate your own CSR and get the certificate issued yourself.

“it generates a full certificate on that page”. didn’t clear that sentence. could you explain further?

You will get the private and public keys for your server. You don’t need to generate a CSR.

Same dir the egde certificates your visitors will see.
