Generate SSL certificate

The self-signed SSL certificate is generated from the server.key private key and server.csr files.

$ openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in server.csr -signkey server.key -out server.crt

The server.crt file is your site certificate suitable for use with Heroku’s SSL add-on along with the server.key private key.
