Well, i installed http and I generated the certificates for use it on Https
When I try to access to my website i got:

Code: Select all uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed. The certificate is only valid for

So I have two questions:
Could it be due to a bad configuration on httpd?
Do I necessarily to pay to a Certificate Authority?

Thanks for your time.

That is how it's supposed to work. Otherwise you would be able to generate your own certificates for and pretend to be Google.

You could have a look at Let's Encrypt to get a better certificate.
