Default Problem generating SSL Certificate


I have a problem generating a SSL certificate.

When I select request certificate, the request is generated, but if I look into the error_log file, I see this error:

Tue May 08 11:24:04 2012] [error] Unable to configure RSA server private key
[Tue May 08 11:24:04 2012] [error] SSL Library Error: 185073780 error:0B080074:x509 certificate routines:X509_check_private_key:key values mismatch

Does anyone now why this is hapenning?

Same here, I don't know what causing this problem.
Apache2 can't start so every site is down, including ISPConfig control panel.

YourSSL cert is broken and thats why apache cant load it.

To get apache up and running, delete the symlink in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled directory and then restart apache.
Afterwards delete all files in the ssl subfolder of the website, then login to ispconfig and create a new ssl cert for this site. ensure that you do not use any special chars or accents / umlauts in the ssl fields as this might result in a corrupted ssl cert.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
