    I just installed a cert on a domain and now WHM wont restart apache due to the fact whenever it restarts it wan\'ts a pass phrase. I litterally have to do it via command line. It\'s not to big a deal but that means when it fails it won\'t automatically restart.

    This is what the command line is asking for for the start
    Apache/1.3.20 mod_ssl/2.8.4 (Pass Phrase Dialog)
    Some of your private key files are encrypted for security reasons.
    In order to read them you have to provide us with the pass phrases.

    Server (RSA)
    Enter pass phrase:


    How do I get it to bypass that so WHM can do the restarts?

    SSH in and:

    Copy the key to another file.
    openssl rsa -in -out

    You\'ll be prompted for the passphrase when you run that, but not on subsequent restarts of apache.
