I need to know how to make a certificate (I think SSL certificate, but I'm not sure) for my server.
I mean the certificate for https connections.

Take a look at
http://www.openssl.org/docs/HOWTO/
You can alter /etc/ssl/openssl.cnf to your needs berofe creating the certificate.

Thanks.

EDIT1: Once I have created a new certificate, where I place it? There is a particular path? (Remember that I want to use this for https connections)

EDIT2: I'm dumb...I found everything into webmin panel.

Just replace those
/etc/httpd/server.cert
/etc/httpd/server.crt
/etc/httpd/server.key

What is the difference between "/etc/httpd/server.cert" and "/etc/httpd/server.crt"?
