Hi , trying to generate a certify using 


openssl copenssl ca -config /etc/ssl/user-openssl.cnf -in dc-req.pem -out


I get the following : 


Using configuration from /etc/ssl/user-openssl.cnf

Enter pass phrase for ./private/cakey.pem:

139946396877888:error:02001002:system library:fopen:No such file or

139946396877888:error:2006D080:BIO routines:BIO_new_file:no such


I found a post saying that you just need to create the index.txt file,but it
leads to "no result "

Another post was saying to insert  in the file "unique_subject = no" 

Nothing at all ( putting yes or no ), as attempts.

Any insights ?
