How to build CA key


Hi,

I read through the documentation on generating master CA certificate and key. It says that ./vars , ./clean-all , and ./build-ca are to be executed to generate CA certificate and key. When I executed ./clean-all, it prompted "You must define KEY_DIR". What is KEY_DIR?

Thanks.

KEY_DIR is a directory to store your key in. If you look in the clean-all script you'll probably find something like "#KEY_DIR= " line?

Did you try running the rest of the scripts anyway - seems like there's nothing to clean.
