It's possible your certificate is invalid... best to get it working with the
default setup before trying to experiment with your own certs.

Unless something else is writing to it I can't see how that could happen..
They're never blank, as the installer sets them up correctly initially (and
the control panel won't let you specify a blank path).  Odd permissions,

Firstly make sure the client is working - connect to the cvsnt CVS repository
with sserver.  Once that's working point the server at the default certificate
file (cvsnt-default.pem) and try to connect to your own repository.
