  There's a README in that directory which explains how to create certificates.  It also explains what the various files are for.

  Oh look, a "README".  Perhaps it should be read?

  As for you "do not want to create certs and keys dynamically", well, the server doesn't randomly create certificates and keys.  It only does so when you tell it to.

  So.... if you don't want to create certs and keys, then don't create the certs and keys.  It's that simple.
