help with directory server certificate


hi.
i've installed directory server in a fedora 12 box, i got it running and i can access it using coldfusion to manage users and groups.
i hit a snag when creating a user, this because coldfusion cannot generate a password, the directory server needs a certificate and a ssl connection.
so i started googling for a way to generate and install a certificate on the server itself and in the directory.
now come you guys, i need a little help in generating the certificate.
this is my administration server and directory(it's novabase directory) not the other one.

help would be appreciated

thanks in advance

It looks like your server is requiring a client certificate. See if there is a config option to disable that.
