I'm trying to setup a self signed SSL certificate with this tutorial, but I'm getting these errors at the last step of certificate creation (with the sign.sh script) error 18 at 0 depth lookup:self signed certificate and error 7 at 0 depth lookup:certificate signature failure.

What should I do to avoid that?

I've setup built-in OS X Apache with HTTPS/SSL a few times. Here's a wiki guide we wrote up documenting it. It is much simpler than the method in the tutorial you cited

Configure Apache for SSL in OS X Snow Leopard:

Create a Self-Signed SSL cert with a one-liner:

+1 because that's my wiki! Oh wait. You're Cocoabean. I feel less cool because I know you. But so you know, I was just checking the logs and this page is generating traffic to the wiki, so even though you're not getting upvotes, you are helping. :) –  sidewaysmilk Jul 9 '11 at 3:13
