    Default Openssl command not found

    I have a domain other than my primary domain secured with a SSL Cert currently. Issued by Godaddy. The compnay is changing names and domains as well. I want to get a new SSL cert, but still keep the current site intact until Godaddy sends new cert.

    When I log in via SSH, and type in the openssl command to generate a new key (different name), i get this error

    -sh: openssl: command not found

    I can to to my Control Panel and see that OpenSSL is installed. I don't want to use the control panel to generate a new key, as this will overwrite the old key and my current website will have problems.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    GNU Compiler Tools needs to be installed in order to run OpenSSL commands from SSH.
    Otherwise you can just reinstall OpenSSL through the Site Manager > Install & Manage and that will regenerate the CSR in 2048 bit.
