    OK...I changed (manually) the directories for all of the SSL certs in the vhosts file to the originals sent to me from GoDaddy. Now, I don't get any errors in the certs...but I did have to enter a pass phrase to restart Apache.

    Since this is the only site that will use SSL, I don't mind if I have to re-change the info on an ISPConfig I don't care if I leave things the way they are now (with the location of the cert files in the VHosts file).

    BUT, is there a way to un-encrypt the private key so that I don't have to enter the pass pharse each time I need a reboot?

    Again, I can't thank everyone enough for the help on this!!!

    yes you can decrypt the pass phrase
    Remove the encryption from the RSA private key (while keeping a backup copy of the original file):
    cp server.key
    openssl rsa -in -out server.key
    you might want to check the permissions afterwords and set accordingly.
