How do I reconfigure Freeswan?

I installed Freeswan, but during the installation I messed up and answered yes to already having a certificate file, which I didn't. Now it won't start due to an error loading certificate. How do I go back through the configuration dialogs so I can fix the error and generate a certificate file?

I tried dpkg-reconfigure freeswan, but it said it is broken or not fully installed
I tried removing it, doing apt-clean, then reinstall it, but it doesn't ask anything

dpkg -P freeswan
to purge configuration files along with the package, then try reinstalling. Hope that helps.
