Apache - Error Message - CN does not match server name

It is possible that the following error message appears in the error_log:

# [notice] caught SIGTERM, shutting down
# [warn] RSA server certificate CommonName (CN) `www.sslcertificaten.nl' does NOT match server name!?
# [error] Unable to configure RSA server private key
# [error] SSL Library Error: 185073780 error:0B080074:x509 certificate routines:X509_check_private_key:key values mismatch

This is caused by the Common Name not being included in the vhost-directive. Add the common name to the vhost-directive and restart Apache to fix this.
