I installed a certificate for apache to enable SSL on a website. To create the CSR for the authority it asks for a passphrase.
When you install the certificate and restart the httpd service it asks for the passphrase, so it needs to be removed from the private key.
To do this use the following command:
openssl rsa -in securesite.domain.net.uk.key -out securesite.domain.net.uk.nopass.key
It should ask for the pass phrase again but it will save it as the nopass version.
Make sure you change your ssl.conf file to use the new file:
