Server certificate verification failed: (ssl-authority-files)

I need to accept an untrusted certificate in --non-interactive mode.
I read in the subversion book that it obviously has something to do with the
ssl-authority-files directive in the servers config file.

So this is what I did:

1. Opened the repository (https://host1/repo) in Firefox.
2. Page Info -> Security -> View Certificate -> Export as X.509 (PEM)
3. Uploaded that pem to the server which is running the subversion client
4. Moved the pem to /etc/ssl/certs
5. Modified /etc/subversion/servers with
ssl-authority-files = /etc/ssl/certs/host1.pem;
6. Restarted the apache2

Unfortunately if I do:
svn list https://host1/repo --non-interactive --username=peter --password=gugu
it still gives me:
Server certificate verification failed: certificate issued for a different
hostname (https://host1)

Do I need an other certificate from host1?
How can I fix this?

Greets, mala
