SSL and .pem problems while setting up ifolder test server.

I’m looking at ifolder, and during installation on my test server I spent some time trying to get my head around the ifolder documentation regarding using .pem certificates with apache2. They explicitly say you have to export your self signed certificate as .pem with ‘ca certificate only’, on my OpenSuse test server /var/log/apache2/error.log kept on giving me

Init: Private key not found

This post gave me a hint on how to resolve this. Exporting the certificate as specified in the ifolder administrator documentation as ‘ca certificate AND the private key’ solved it all.
