I switched this a time ago from Ubuntu to CentOS. Now, I faced this problem:

Trying to install a software that I installed before in Ubuntu, I stopped at the point where I need to install the above mentioned modules: libapache2-mod-auth-pgsql and ssl-cert. Can anybody tell me how to install them in CentOS, or some equivalent libraries to them?

For the first one:

$ yum search mod_auth_pgsql
======================================================== N/S Matched: mod_auth_pgsql =========================================================

The ssl-cert package is a Debian shell script wrapping openssl to make things easier, or something like that. I don't believe there's an equivalent. On the other hand, it's just a shell script plus some config files. You should be able to just grab that, and, in the worst case, figure out how to run openssl with the right options.

Also, if you're just generated SSL certs to use with Postgres, you can look for explicit instructions on using openssl. For example:
