phpki server certificate - how to replace?

phpki server certificate - how to replace?
« on: July 02, 2019, 02:25:20 PM »
On a new server, I was installing openssl + phpki and an error occurred.  While creating the initial CA certificate for the server, it produced a rather short certificate... about 10 lines.  This seems too low (for 2048/15yrs).
  Is there an recommended way to delete the current CA one and generate a new one?  I didn't find anything about regeneration in the forum or wiki page.
  Thanks in advice for any pointers for how to fix this.  BTW, I followed the wiki on uninstalling and re-installed it, but the certs on try 2 were short also.  Did the initial install leave something behind after the removal of the /opt/phpki directory (per the wiki)?

Just go to PHPKi / Manage certificates and you will see an option to revoke certificate. Once you revoke a certificate, you will be able to generate a new one.
I also have (for 2048/15yrs) and my CA certificate is about 28 lines long.
