Subject [users@httpd] "Unable to configure RSA server private key...."
Date Tue, 11 Mar 2003 19:59:19 GMT

Whenever I start up my newly-compiled apache (v.1.3.27) on Linux (RH
7.2: kernel v.2.4.18-19.7.x) I'm prompted for the passwd (good), but
after that apache isn't loaded.  Here's the screens:

# /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start
Starting httpd: 
Apache/1.3.27 mod_ssl/2.8.12 (Pass Phrase Dialog)

>From /var/log/httpd/error_log:

[Tue Mar 11 14:47:31 2003] [error] mod_ssl: Init: ( Unable to configure
RSA server private key (OpenSSL library error follows)
[Tue Mar 11 14:47:31 2003] [error] OpenSSL: error:0B080074:lib(11):func(128):reason(116)

The "ps" command confirms no httpd running.

Using "apachectl start" yeilds exactly the same... down to all the 
numbers in error_log.

A syntax check returns "OK".

So... Anyone know if I missed something?  Is there a better place to ask
this question?

Thanks in advance for your help.
