Bug#136052: apache-ssl in woody/stable can't use encrypted keys
Hi, we found ourselves wrestling with this bug today after
upgrading a web server from potato to woody. What we ended
up doing, though we wish we didn't have to, is re-writing
the server key *without* a passphrase, and editing httpd.conf
to point to this new, "naked" server key. Here's the basic
openssl syntax, hope it helps others in this predicament.
openssl rsa -inform PEM -in protected.key \
-outform PEM -out naked.key -check
Any idea when this might be fixed, or should we be switching
from apache-ssl to some other package, like apache + mod_ssl?
