OpenSSL on a Mac

Has anyone used OpenSSL on a Mac or Ubuntu? I’d like to generate a SSL certificate for my OwnCloud installation so I can test it all out and that seems to be a cheap way to go for now. I can’t find instructions how to do it on a Mac, though. I have access to an Ubuntu machine though so that could also work.

Any suggestions?

  1. If you find the app/setup is working well – I recommend you consider buying an SSL 123 from thawte or another Certificate Authority – that way the cert won’t error or require additional approval when connecting from other devices as CA certs are usually trusted more easily than self signed certs.
