I've started playing around with Google's Cloud Platform
recently and one of the first things I wanted to do was to secure my app's static pages so they could be delivered over HTTPS
. This meant that I needed to upload my certificate and private key to Google
. I went ahead and generated my key as usual and I thought I had an RSA
key already, but Google
didn't seem to like it.
This was the error I was getting - "The private key that you've seleted does not appear to be valid."
I did some searching around and it appeared that my key had to be converted first. The header of my key started with:
That was a sign that Google
wouldn't accept that key. Luckily openssl
can easily convert the key to an expected format with the following command:
Now after loading the second, converted, RSA
accepted it without error!
