Hello, I followed the documentation instructions for generating a CSR but when I try to enter it into GoDaddy's form, it says it's invalid. I did see the other user who asked the same question, but their solution does not work for me, I DID copy the entire block of the CSR including the "begin certificate request" line etc. I tried re-generating a certificate to no avail. If anyone else has figured out why GoDaddy wont' accept a CSR generated with OpenSSL please let me know what your solution was. Thank you.

Hello,

Can you please open a support ticket and provide the CSR, so that we can dig into this further?

Thank you.

May have been user error, maybe not, But I resolved the issue by pasting the CSR into notepad and THEN pasting it into the goDaddy form. I was using Git Bash as a terminal emulator and SSH to connect, apparently when I copy and pasted from the Git Bash window, it was picking up a character it didn't like. Scrubbing it by pasting to notepad first worked for me if anyone else has a similar issue.
