.keystore to access https

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Running Confluence Over SSL or HTTPS

Hello good day, I need your help.
I am following the step by step, then Create a Self-Signed Certificate ok, but when I use the Certificate Issued by a Certificate Authority ...
At the time of 2. Use the keytool utility to generate a CSR, replacing the text <MY_KEYSTORE_FILENAME> with the path to and file name of the .keystorefile generated for your site certificate:

keytool -certreq -keyalg RSA -alias tomcat -file certreq.csr -keystore <MY_KEYSTORE_FILENAME>

I do not know where the .keystore where it was generated in the previous step? Or lack the generation step .keystore because I do not know where it is located, or his name to use this command.

I ran into the same thing... The .keystore was created in (Windows) c:\users\username_you_run_Confluence_under\.keystore

I wish the article was updated in 2.5 years...It would have saved us a lot of time...
