Apache 2.0.59 startssl with being asked for the passphrase

Is there a easy way to start the Apache SSL without being asked the passphrase each time, I would like to have a startup in the rc2.d directory for when the system is rebooted.

From the apache documentation pages, located here:

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/ssl/ssl_faq.html

on this page, search for the phrase:

"How can I get rid of the pass-phrase dialog at Apache startup time?"

I think this may help you.

Shalom,

If startssl is asking for a passphrase then you built the certificate that way. The certificate needs to be generated without a certificate, which is what Ivan's link does.

Apache and ssl should start up in rc3.d directory, not rc2.d. There are basic network functions that you want working before applications like apache/apachessl are running.
