Hi,

If this is for a website you probably need a trusted SSL certificate from a Certificate Authority (CA) in order from web browsers to trust your web site and not warn users and prevent them from accessing it. To get a trusted SSL certificate from a CA you need to purchase one and the CA then will verify you are who you claim and that you control the website. They will then issue you a certificate.

Here is some links to a couple:

https://ssl.comodo.com/

https://ca.godaddy.com/web-security/ssl-certificate

https://letsencrypt.org/ (free but certificates must be renewed every 90 days)

There are many more options as well.

If this website it for internal use only and you control the machines that can connect to it you can used a self signed certificate and add that certificate to the trust store of the machines that will access it yourself. If you are using PxPLus 2017 are newer PxPlus provides a tool for generating a self signed certificate (https://manual.pvxplus.com/PXPLUS/utilities/SSL%20Cert%20Generator.htm).
