Apache version : Apache/2.4.18
OS : FreeBSD 10.2

I was trying to install a commercial SSL certificate generated as wild card certificate generated against CA using wild card like for example *.example.com
and was installing on one of FreeBSD apache server where its operating as abc.example.com
after applying the certificate files in httpd-ssl.conf .. apache is restarting fine but when i try to access via browser i get this error

have put certificates like mentioned below
a) SSLCertificateFile "/root/SSL/example/abc.example.com.cer"
b) SSLCertificateChainFile "/root/SSL/example/abc.example.com.CA.cer"
c) SSLCertificateKeyFile "/root/SSL/example/abc.example.com.key"

and also have put the Virtual hosts section entry as below

<VirtualHost *:443>
ServerName abc.example.com
ServerAlias *.example.com

Please guide me on resolving this issue

"common name" (CN)
