Set up SSL from GoDaddy on Heroku

Heroku Instructions

I was assigned the task to renew the SSL for a client that already was renewed on GoDaddy.

Use openssl to generate a private key

openssl genrsa -des3 -out server.pass.key 2048

Strip of password from previous generated key

openssl rsa -in server.pass.key -out server.key

Create Certificate Signing Request (CSR)

openssl req -nodes -new -key server.key -out server.csr

Submit CSR and Buy SSL from GoDaddy (or any provider for that matter)

Download certificate from GoDaddy

Set up SSL on Heroku ($20/year)

heroku addons:add ssl:endpoint

Add certificate to Heroku

heroku certs:add server.crt server.key
