Hi, I am not understanding the point of the config file's mandatory default -new_certs_dir into which goes what appears to be a copy of the certificate I specifically locate elsewhere in the file system. I am using the -out option from the command line to generate the file named according to the convention I have chosen...and then in the new_certs directory is deposited the <hex>.pem file. Of course, I haven't found an explanation as to why this happens in the documentation or the Googlie.
