Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to SSL Module Fails to Load

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
Glen, you need to strip the passphrase out of your SSL key. Here's how I've done it:

To generate a self-signed cert. and then strip out the passphrase so it will work with AOLserver, do:

$ /usr/local/ssl/bin/openssl req -new -x509 -keyout key+pass.pem -out certfile.pem -days 365
$ /usr/local/ssl/bin/openssl rsa -in key+pass.pem -out keyfile.pem
