You need to create a valid server certificate. Either buy one from those that sell (Verisign, Dyndns, etc), or create a self-signed. If you want a freebie - check out CAcert.org.

The Apache Web site has info how to create a self-signed certificate for your server.

If it ain't broken - you're not really trying....

There is another problem. At least until F8, the OpenSSL config file in /etc/pki/tls/openssl.cnf
If you look at the [ CA_default ] section you'll find that the directories listed do not match the
ones that are actually installed with the package.

So if you use openssl command to create a cert you'll need to override the defaults or muck around w/ the config.
