Subject RE: [users@httpd] private key pass phrase

Well... to be precise, you can convert a pass-phrased certificate to a no-pass-phrase certificate
using openssl but you have to *know* the passphrase already to do this!

If I understood correctly, this guy has forgotten the passphrase altogether. So he's up the
creek.
