    Hi!

    I got a client tha wants to have his own SSL cert installed - he bought it already.
    But his Key file is encrypted and protected with a password.

    When I try to add the key in WHM - install SSL function it say:

    Attempting to verify your certificate.....
    This key file is encrypted with a password. You must use openssl to decrypt this key first!


    So, I guess I need to decrypt the file to get the "real" key to use !?
    Anyone know how to do this in a very simple way ?

    I read som docs and tried a few commands with open ssl but it's not working.
    I just don't get it - I already aksed the client that he needs to send us the real key and
    not a encrypted one but he seem to know just as little as we do.
