When you say 'certification error' do you mean that your browser does  
not recognize the entity that signed the certificate?  That is to be  
expected since you generated a self-signed certificate.  Unless you  
install the certificate in your browser (Accept Permanently or  
whatever the equivalent is for your browser), you'll get this every  
time and it is essentially harmless.
