Hi,
i'm doing some test with a REST Web Service on my hosting. I need to do some test on security, so i force https, using .htaccess.
When i try to do an http call using curl, it gives me some error because i have no certificate. So i think to create a self-signed certificate with openssl.

The problem is: I have no bash (ssh) access to that hosting. Is there any way to have a certificate (a simply way, without pay. It is only a test) for my domain, without a terminal access into the server?

Thank you

You'd need SSH access to edit the web server config to use your own cert, so no.

Read the error curl is giving you; it tells you exactly how to bypass it.
