I'm trying to setup Apache to use a self signed certificate but I can't seem to get it working. I've tried many methods and last tried This answer but still ran into the same issue. Safari (And Chrome) give me a completely different certificate (Not even close to the one I provide it) that makes no sense at all. I haven't heard of anyone else having this issue nor do I know where it's getting "ORname_Jungo: OpenRG Products Group" from. I also posted my ssl configuration here.

Does anyone have any ideas?

How did you generate the certificate? – pjc50 Jun 19 '12 at 14:02
I generated it with openssl req -new -x509 -days 999 -nodes -out apache.pem -keyout apache.pem – nosedive25 Jun 19 '12 at 15:14
where id apache come from? what OS / distro? Do you use – Ram Jun 19 '12 at 17:53

So I figured out what caused this. First off the "server" is a test machine I'm running within my home network that I use to test things before pushing them to the real server. I realized that I had forgotten to forward port 443 for https, thus sending the request to my router, not my server so it was returning my routers ssl certificate (Which I was unaware it even had). After forwarding the port all is working.
