Remove SSL Certificate Passphrase



# cd /etc/ssl/private
# openssl rsa -in website.key -out website.key.no-passphrase
Enter pass phrase for website.key:
writing RSA key
# mv website.key website.key.old-with-passphrase
# cp website.key.no-passphrase website.key
# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
  * Restarting web server apache2
#
apache starts without asking for the passphrase

Another way is to use the SSLPassPhraseDialog directive to read in the password from a script.
