Having trouble installing our new certificates.
Can't get apache to refire with the new settings. ANy help would be appreciated. Thx. If it helps we are using:
Xampp for Linux 1.6.6 on
ubuntu Gutsy

--copy mycert.crt to /opt/lampp/etc/ssl.crt/
--copy intermediate_bundle.crt to /opt/lampp/etc/ssl.crt/
--copy mycert.key to /opt/lampp/etc/ssl.key/

--edited httpd-ssl.conf to include lines:
SSLCertificateFile /opt/lampp/etc/ssl.crt/mycert.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /opt/lampp/etc/ssl.key/mycert.key
SSLCertificateChainFile /opt/lampp/etc/ssl.crt/intermediate_bundle.crt

Stop apache via
/opt/lampp/lampp stop
Attempt restart via
/opt/lampp/lampp start

Apache startup hangs indefinitely with message:
XAMPP: Starting Apache with SSL (and PHP5)...

Anyone had this problem?
thank you for looking.

My server key has a passphrase in it. I removed that and all is well now.

Here are the instructions I followed: ... m_key.html
