Thanks a lot folks. I am getting some sort of handle here .
The problem is  If I use the original key and the certificate that they give
me, the web server does not start I assume because the CN, OU, etc. does not
match.I just want a SSL cert that works.So right now I use a self signed
CA.Now is there a concept of applying for a *Revoke *of an old CA before you
apply for a  a new CA .
Because if I give the CN as  xyz.abc.com I get a certificate *.abc.com why
should that be so .
Thanks again
