Problem

I'm getting messages that say:

################# SSL Certificate Warning ################

Certificate for hostname 'voyager.xdroop.com', in file (or by nickname): /etc/pki/tls/certs/localhost.crt

The certificate needs to be renewed; this can be done using the 'genkey' program.

Browsers will not be able to correctly connect to this web site using SSL until the certificate is renewed.

########################################################## Generated by certwatch(1)

Solution

When you install CentOS 6, you get a fake dummy cert installed. It's only good for a year.

To regenerate it:

cd /etc/pki/tls/certs
./make-dummy-cert localhost.crt
...and the problem will go away for another year.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
