Remove password prompt on SSL key

Linux (Ubuntu) Add comments

I came across this problem the first time installed an SSL certificate on a website using Ubuntu 8.04
The server asked for a password every time Apache was restarted (including reboot). After searching online I found the following solution:

cd /etc/apache2/ssl
cp server.key server.key.orig
openssl rsa -in server.key.orig -out server.key

(replace server.key and related values with actual filenames in your setup)
