    Hello everyone, I follow the tutorial to secure ISPC with free SSL from here http://www.howtoforge.com/securing-...h-a-free-class1-ssl-certificate-from-startssl

    only that I generate private key at StartSSL website and not at my vps. I successfully made it works thanks for the tutorial; but I have this nuisance (not a problem really) that everytime I want to restart Apache service I have to insert the private key pass phrase that I add at StartSSL website.


    How do I make it normal again? Thanks in advance.

    You installed an password protected ssl certificate and the password query is for that ssl cert. you have to replace it with a ssl cert without password protection.

    Hi, I decrypt the private key and use the decrypted private key in ispserver.key. It works now but is this the correct way to do it?

    Thanks for your response.
