      Private Key already exists when trying to do a certificate create

      Your post

      I have purchased an SSL cert from godaddy to work with my filemaker server.  When trying to generate the serverrequest.pem via a command prompt, I receive an error 20406: (unknown error) "Private Key already exists.  Please remove it and run the command again".  How do I remove the private key?  Command prompt work is foreign to me, Please help!

          The private key for FileMaker Server you find in OSX :
          /Library/FileMaker Server/CStore

          This is what I have:

          ls -ltr

          total 784

          -rw-r--r--  1 fmserver  fmsadmin    7118 Apr 20  2014 server.pem

          -rw-r--r--  1 root      fmsadmin    1013 Oct 20 11:00 serverRequest.pem

          -rw-r--r--  1 root      fmsadmin    1834 Oct 20 11:00 serverKey.pem

          -rw-r--r--  1 root      fmsadmin    3770 Oct 20 11:24 serverCustom.pem

          -rw-r--r--  1 fmserver  fmsadmin  379789 Oct 20 12:58 root.pem

          I hope that helps.
