Subject rampart - creating new keys - problems
Date Mon, 07 May 2007 15:42:14 GMT

Im trying to follow the directions from ( to
create new keys for my site. Its goes ok until I get to this step:

openssl ca -config openssl.cnf -out service.pem -infiles service.cert.req

I get the error that someone else posted to the page:

failed to update database
TXT_DB error number 2

I followed the link posted to
but Im too dim to understand how this helps me. 

"If you get a 'TXT_DB error number 2', you are attempting to certify a key
that has already been certified, i.e. if you look at index.txt you should
that the DN of the certificate signing request has already been used. Redo
with a modified DN."

So clearly I don't understand what the DN is. I thought it was the DirName
info I put in - State, Org, Email, etc.
