Bug#395823: apache2-ssl-certificate disappeared



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1


Hi Debian Apache Developers and Maintainers,

Yeah, the disappearing of the apache2-ssl-certificate script may not
very useful especially for novices in Debian GNU/Linux.

It's main parts were:

export RANDFILE=/dev/random
openssl req $@ -config /usr/share/apache2/ssleay.cnf \
 -new -x509 -nodes -out /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.pem \
 -keyout /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.pem
chmod 600 /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.pem

You may like to specify days:

export RANDFILE=/dev/random
openssl req $@ -config /usr/share/apache2/ssleay.cnf \
 -new -x509 -days 365 -nodes -out /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.pem \
 -keyout /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.pem
chmod 600 /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.pem


Best Regards, Jan
