apache2-ssl-certificate script is missing


I am trying to set up a secure portion of my webserver (apache2) using Ubuntu under feisty (I'll update to Heron when it releases in april). In the directions I am following (http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/349), I am unable to find (or execute) the following script

Code:
jimb@empire:~$ sudo apache2-ssl-certificate
sudo: apache2-ssl-certificate: command not found
Does anyone know how I can obtain a certificate for secure session for my site? I've hit brick wall after brick wall as I've been doing this project. Thank you.

- JB

Use openssl to generate and create your certificate. Don't always rely on scripts that might not come default on your OS. Try searching for "self signed certificate apache SSL" on google or the like for actual instructions on how to create a self signed certificate for Apache.

thanks guys, I found a valid workaround. Apparently, this is a big bug for feisty

sudo mkdir /etc/apache2/ssl
sudo /usr/sbin/make-ssl-cert /usr/share/ssl-cert/ssleay.cnf /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.pem
