I have LAMP (Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP) installed on my Raspberry Pi with OS =Raspbian Stretch.
Apache Version: Apache/2.4.25 (Raspbian)
PHP Version: 5.6.30-0+deb8u1

the local site name is huttesrv000.hutte.local with alias www.hutte.local (works fine)

Now I like to use SSL on my local site:
I created in the folder /etc/apache2/ssl 2 files: server.crt and server.key:
sudo openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 1095 -newkey rsa:2048 -out /etc/apache2/ssl/server.crt -keyout /etc/apache2/ssl/server.key

Installed SSL module :
sudo a2enmod ssl

in the folder /etc/apache2/sites-available I adjusted/added:
ServerName huttesrv000.hutte.local
ServerAlias www.hutte.local
SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/server.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache2/ssl/server.key

in /etc/apache2/ports.conf:
Listen 80 http
<IfModule ssl_module>
Listen 443 https
<IfModule mod_gnutls.c>
Listen 443
# vim: syntax=apache ts=4 sw=4 sts=4 sr noet

restarted Apache2 service

But when I try to launch https://www.hutte.local with Mozilla Firefox in Window 10 I get:

error code:
www.hutte.local uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed.
The certificate is not valid for the name www.hutte.local.


As browser I use Mozilla Firefox on Windows 10:

In Options/advanced/certificates/View certificates/Authorities I see:


and under CA certificate trust settings:
checked: this certicate can identify websites
checked: this certicate can identify mail users
checked: this certicate can identify software makers

can anyone point me in the right direction to solve this problem?
Thank you in advance.

SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/server.crt

You must load this certificate in the trusted store of your firefox!

and for Edge or Internet Explorer in the trusted store of windows (You open this with "certmgr.msc" and load the certificate under "CA").

I already did that in Firefox
In Windows an error was returned:

This site is not secure

This might mean that someone’s trying to fool you or steal any info you send to the server. You should close this site immediately.

Go to your Start page

Your PC doesn’t trust this website’s security certificate.
The hostname in the website’s security certificate differs from the website you are trying to visit.
