    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 (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

    You can either generate a new certificate following this howto
    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
    openssl rsa -in -out server.key
    chmod 400 server.key
    /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart
