Hi,

You need to set apache up not to ask for a password.

look at ...

SSLPassPhraseDialog
exec:/usr/local/apache/bin/printkey.pl

where printkey.pl could be ...

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

my $passwords = {
                'x.com'            => 'pass1',
                'y.com'            => 'pass2'
                };

my $server = (split(/:/, $ARGV[0]))[0];

print "$passwords->{$server}\n";

Regards
Matt
