Default Removing the ingress of pas phrase at booting

Hello everybody
I'm starting with ISPconfig, and I think that it will solve a lot of problems that I'm having!!
I installed it with out problem with the helps of the howto. But I have a question:
Can I automate the process when the server boot that ask me to ingress the pass phrase for RSA?
It say:

Starting ISPConfig system...
Apache/1.3.39 mod_ssl/2.8.30 (Pass Pharse Dialog)
Some of your private key file are encrypted for security reasons. In order to read them you have to provede us with the pass phrases.
Server www.xyz.com:81 (RSA)
Enter pass phrase:

And stop there!! If I'm not there when the server turn on I can enter the phrase!! Or how can I remove this module without having problems with ISPconfig?
Thanks very much
Rafael Lor

You can either generate a new certificate following this howto http://www.howtoforge.com/faq/14_63_en.html
just be sure during steps 7 and 8 you choose "no" otherwise you will be in same boat, or you can simply remove the passphrase of your certificate by using this
cd /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/ssl.key/
cp server.key server.key.org
openssl rsa -in server.key.org -out server.key
chmod 400 server.key
/etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart
