[warn] RSA server certificate is a CA certificate (BasicConstraints: CA == TRUE !?) - Apache Error Solution

Does this mean? [warn] RSA server certificate is a CA certificate (BasicConstraints: CA == TRUE !?)

Basically it means you created your SSL Certificate as a CA the wrong way, usually with this command:

openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -days 1530 -out server.crt -keyout server.key
 

How can you fix it and do it properly?

Step 1.) Make a new Private KeyCreate server pass key:

openssl genrsa -des3 -passout pass:x -out server.pass.key 2048
Create private key
openssl rsa -passin pass:x -in server.pass.key -out server.key
remove server.pass.key (not needed after you have your private key)
rm server.pass.key

Step 2.) Generate your CSR

Use the newly created server.key (Private Key) to generate your CSR).

openssl req -new -key server.key -out server.csr

Step 3.) Create .CRT using your CSR

openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in server.csr -signkey server.key -out server.crt
