    Hi I deciede to go with the debian setup with ispconfig2 since it gives more freedom to install such apps as drupal joomla and much much more as you know.
    But Im am currently upto page for http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-debian-lenny-ispconfig2-p4
    section: **Afterwards we create the certificates for TLS: ***

    I have run the commands
    Code:
    mkdir /etc/postfix/ssl
    cd /etc/postfix/ssl/
    openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024
    and the next step in the tutorial is to enter the following command
    Code:
    chmod 600 smtpd.key
    but after I ran the commands run the codes
    Code:
    mkdir /etc/postfix/ssl
    cd /etc/postfix/ssl/
    openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024
    It is now asking me for a phrase key
    Code:
    server1:~# cd /etc/postfix/ssl/
    server1:/etc/postfix/ssl# openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024
    302 semi-random bytes loaded
    Generating RSA private key, 1024 bit long modulus
    ...........++++++
    .......................++++++
    e is 65537 (0x10001)
    Enter pass phrase for smtpd.key:
    so at this section
    Code:
    Enter pass phrase for smtpd.key:
    do I enter a pass phrase of my own or is that were I enter the chmod command
    Code:
    chmod 600 smtpd.key

    please guys if anyone is around I, I'v been working on this for the last few hrs, & want to get this done before my kid wakes up.
    Thanks heaps

    ooooops

    OOPS SORRY FOR THIS, MAYBE i SHOULD OF DONE A FINER SEARCH..

    I just found a post with this question already answered, I've been up all night and I guess my tiredness got the better of me.

    can I suggest more control over our own posts in the ""thread tool"" I'm with a few forums that have options like, deleting your post & closing your thread, just in case you find your self in the same predicament as I'm in now lol...

    sorry........
