    Hi,

    I've just created a new SSL certificate but stupidly did not save the shared secret passphrase.
    It states under the Passphrase field on the SSL Certificate creation page:
    Can the passphrase be recovered?
    Otherwise what should I do?

    Any assitance would be appreciated.

    Hello,

    Have you already purchased a SSL certificate with that CSR/Key? If not, you could simply generate a new CSR/KEY.

    Thank you.
