Generating a Certificate

FileZilla Server wanted a certificate when I tried to connect. This was the process I followed to create a certificate. Search for your two digit country code before start. On FileZilla’s menu select ‘Edit’, select ‘FTP over TLS settings’, check the ‘FTP over TLS setting’, click ‘Generate new certificate…’ and a form will appear.

Now, the country code is needed. Fill in the form. Click ‘Browse…’ to select the path where the certificate should be saved; click ‘Generate certificate’. There will be a request for a ‘Key Password’ to be entered for the certificate. Enter the password and click ‘OK’. Remember the password and the certificate is ready to use.
