A basic understanding or reading of the mod_md page will tell you it is to manage generation of certificates automatically. Certificates are associated with CN Names and those with virtualhost names. I have a hard time trying to understand what is difficult to understand about what mod_md is. Perhaps changing the main description a bit will make it more understable?

Perhaps a more schematic view will clear things up mod_md: generates certfiicates for domains mod_ssl: Load certificates for domains. If mod_md is present and manages a domain, mod_ssl is supposed to use mod_md ones instead of those manually given through file paths. -- Daniel Ferradal IT Specialist email dferradal at gmail.com linkedin es.linkedin.com/in/danielferradal
