The problem

When a user reinstall a yunohost with the same domain, an error ssl is displayed on the browser:

An error occurred during a connection to You have received
an invalid certificate. Please contact the server administrator or email
correspondent and give them the following information: Your certificate
contains the same serial number as another certificate issued by the
certificate authority. Please get a new certificate containing a unique
serial number. Error code: SEC_ERROR_REUSED_ISSUER_AND_SERIAL


Put a random serial number into the CA certificate.
