How to install a valid cert for apache on fedora core 6 from

  1. Create the server key (in this example RSA 1024 bit):
      openssl genrsa -out host.key 1024
  2. Make a certificate out of it (it won’t be signed yet):
      openssl req -new -key host.key -out host.csr
  3. Create your CA certificate (will be valid for a year):
      openssl req -new -x509 -days 365 -key host.key -out host.crt

Once you get a signed crt, put it in /etc/pki/tls/certs named localhost.crt if you are using the base config located at /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf. You will also need to move your .key file create above to /etc/pki/tls/priviate named localhost.key.

Very easy to do with fedora core.
