Decrypting Certificates for HTTPS ConnectionsLocate this document in the navigation structure

The Apache 2.2 Windows version does not support encrypted certificate key files. If the key file is encrypted, you must first decrypt it.


  1. To decrypt an encrypted file, from a command prompt, run:
    openssl rsa -in <encrypted>.key -out <decrypted>.key
  2. Use the decrypted key in the httpd.conf file.
