You said: You can follow this procedure (ubuntu 16.04). I think it will work for Ubuntu 14.04.

But which procedure? 

Please specify.

 frankb  GLPI - this is another inventory software. So I didn't install it.

You asked: Did you enable z-ocsinventory-server.conf file with a2enconf command?

Yes I did. But I still have the same issue.

What else can I do to resolve it ?

[Wed Apr 12 14:57:50.316424 2017] [ssl:warn] [pid 20268] AH01906: RSA server certificate is a CA certificate (BasicConstraints: CA == TRUE !?)
[Wed Apr 12 14:57:50.316460 2017] [ssl:warn] [pid 20268] AH01909: RSA certificate configured for mywebsite:443 does NOT include an ID which matches the server name

You told me that your site is in http but I don't understand why it says that the server name in the certificate is not correct. If you have a certificate, it means you are in https... Are you sure you are not ?

Try in your agent conf file

If I use https on the ocs agent config file I get this:

[error] Cannot establish communication : 500 SSL_ca_file /var/lib/ocsinventory-agent//https:website/ocsinventory/cacert.pem does not exist

This is my OCS agent config file
