Default Thawte SSL Cert - Apache shows waring CN does not match server name

Hi All,

I recently requested a thawte SSL cert for one of my customers. i have downloaded the crt and installed via the ISPConfig 3 CP. I have also included their 'bundle' crt.

Things are basically working but I see in the Apache error log:

[Mon Feb 18 13:59:53 2013] [warn] RSA server certificate CommonName (CN) `' does NOT match server name!?
If I dump the crt via openssl I see:

root@webserver2:/var/www/ openssl x509 -in -noout -subject
subject= / Organization/O=Self Funded Plans, Inc./serialNumber=559576/C=US/ST=Ohio/L=Cleveland/
In the /etc/apache2/sites-available I see:

So, from the screen where I requested the SSL for this site I entered:

Organizational Unit:
SSL Domain:

Should I have set the OU to '' instead of ''?
But when I did that and requested from thawte, the cert came back w/o the 'www' So I'm confused
