I have an Amazon AWS instance that is hanging after a reboot. I can tell via the System Log in the AWS control panel that it is waiting for me to type in my SSL passphrase:
... [80G [74G[ OK ] * Starting periodic command scheduler crond [80G [74G[ OK ] * Starting web server apache2 Apache/2.2.8 mod_ssl/2.2.8 (Pass Phrase Dialog) Some of your private key files are encrypted for security reasons. In order to read them you have to provide the pass phrases. Server xxxxxxxxx.xxx:443 (RSA) Enter pass phrase:
So if I try to SSH into the server, I get a timeout. Is there any way I can get around this? Maybe disable apache from loading somehow remotely until I can SSH into it and do it myself?
