Hello,

I have created a self signed certificate for apache2 encrypted with a key and a passphrase.

Everything works well and now I want to remove the passphrase from the key.
However, openssl does not allow me to enter an empty passphrase

# openssl rsa -des3 -in apache.key -out apache.key.plain
Enter pass phrase for secure.htr.gr.apache.key: *******
writing RSA key
Enter PEM pass phrase:
Verifying - Enter PEM pass phrase:
phrase is too short, needs to be at least 4 chars

I get a similar mistake error if I try to create a key with an empty passphrase
(23369:error:28069065:lib(40):UI_set_result:result too small:ui_lib.c:847:You must type in 4 to 8191 characters)

Any suggestios?

Thanks
