Apache does not start after ssl cert re-keying

Postby dcornfel » 14. July 2014 17:39

I have been running XAMPP with apache and SSL on my 32 bit Win 7 computer for 2 years now. My ssl certificate with GO Daddy expired so I purchased and re-keyed a new one. To do this is I created a new private key, CSR file (which I uploaded to GoDaddy), and downloaded a new certificate and new bundled certificate file to my system. I moved the old ones out of my certs folder and moved the new ones in (both certificates and the private key) renaming the filed to what was previously in the folder and so I would not have to rename the links in my vhosts file. When I restart Apache it will not restart. If I copy the old files back into the certs file it restarts fine. Any insight into where my problem might be?

I actually have repeated this process 3 times now and it is still not working.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Is this a common problem you have seen that I can fix?

I solved the problem. I removed the passkey from the .key file. Apparently Apache does not work with passphrase encrypted keys on Windows.

Thank you for your help. If I had not gone through the exercise of posting question I would not have found the answer.
