Smile RSA certificate for ssl server problem

Hi all,
I have a linux Web server connected to another server with the web page for the https request. i need to config the ssl setting in my web server so that it handles the request for the https request. but there is ssl error log in the web server:
RSA server certificate is a CA certificate (Basic Constraints: CA==TRUE!?)
RSA server certificate CommonName (CN) 'localhost.localdomain' does NOT match server name!?
and i have the CA certificate in the https page server. should i paste the CA certificate and private key and any things required to the web server? and where should i paste?since i paste it for the server certificate i can't start httpd, or CA certificate it does not work.
Thanks for helping!

Maybe it would be a good idea to check a HOWTO for the basic steps like Set up your own Certification Authority?
