SSL Library Error: -8181 Certificate has expired in centos webserver


i have posted about this issue a long time back also and that time it worked after i remved nss.conf file.and this time it gave the following error:

Code:
[error] SSL Library Error: -8181 Certificate has expi
red
[Sun Sep 23 04:02:03 2012] [error] Unable to verify certificate 'Server-Cert'. A
dd "NSSEnforceValidCerts off" to nss.conf so the server can start until the prob
lem can be resolved.
but then i httpd.conf was not using mod_nss but still then i did 'rpm -e mod-nss' not knowing where it was located....after that https again started successfully..


so can anyone please tell me why do i keep getting this issue and do i need to reintall the mod_nss back?
