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.
