    Question [SOLVED] remove ssl cert passphrase

    I installed a new commercially signed ssl cert this morning and that's ok but when I created the cert I set a passphrase not knowing any better!

    Now when I restart zimbra with zmcontrol I get prompted with starting ldap enter passphrase and I have to enter the phrase.

    How do I remove this?

    This is how I installed the cert if anyone is interested. After lots of forum searching I got it working with this.

    cd /root/tmp
    [root@mail tmp]$ vi commercial.crt (copy your server cert here)
    [root@mail tmp]$ vi ca.crt (copy the Root CA Cert here)
    [root@mail tmp]$ vi /opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/commercial/commercial.key (copy your private key here)

    [root@mail tmp]$ /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr verifycrt comm /opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/commercial/commercial.key /root/tmp/commercial.crt

    [root@mail tmp]$ /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr deploycrt comm /root/tmp/commercial.crt /root/tmp/ca.crt

    [root@mail tmp]$ /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr viewdeployedcrt

    Then restart zimbra

    Sorted this by first making a copy of my private key
    cp server.key
    Then running this
    openssl rsa -in -out server.key
    changing the permissions so only root can read it
    chmod 400 server.key
    and running through the steps above again
