Do I need to create a new CSR to renew my ssl certificate?

Many servers including Apache servers allow you to install a new certificate to an old request. However, the following servers will not allow you to install a new certificate to an old request:

  • All Windows Servers
  • Tomcat Servers
  • Java-Based Servers

If you have any of the above server platforms, you should place your order for a renewal certificate with a new CSR.
