In the excellent tutorial "Installing a LAMP System with Fedora Core 6
" by falko, in step 10 (install and setup Postfix and Dovecot) I ran into a problem and could use some help.
At the point when I enter the following command, it asks for me to enter a pass phrase for validation. Falko didn't mention anything about needing a pass phrase. What do I need to do now?
Here's the command and the subsequent request:
[root@web ssl]# openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024
231 semi-random bytes loaded
Generating RSA private key, 1024 bit long modulus
e is 65537 (0x10001)
Enter pass phrase for smtpd.key:
Verifying - Enter pass phrase for smtpd.key:
User interface error
4065:error:0906906F:PEM routines:PEM_ASN1_write_bio:read key
I thought it might be wanting me to make up a new pass phrase, so I entered an random combination of 10 letters and number, but verification failed.
Any help is appreciated.
