Huh, that wasn't that bad...

I managed to make a CSR (Certificate Signing Request), pass that onto CACert, and install the certificate onto my server. =^^=v

Mostly, I think it was this table that I was lacking previously:

DN Field



Explanation



Example


Common Name The fully qualified domain
name for your web server. This must be an exact match.
If you intend to secure the
URL https://www.yourdomain.com, then your CSR's common name must be
www.yourdomain.com.
Organization The exact legal name of your
organization. Do not abbreviate your organization name.
RapidSSL.com
Organization Unit Section of the organization
Marketing
City or Locality The city where your organization
is legally located.
Wellesley Hills
State or Province The state or province where
your organization is legally located. Can not be abbreviated.
Massachusetts
Country The two-letter ISO abbreviation
for your country.
US
