- Why not use a WAMP stack? 5 answers
I am trying to install an SSL certificate on my WAMP server for the first time. I've never done anything like this, so please, bare with me.
W:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.2.22\bin>echo %OPENSSL_CONF% w:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.2.22\conf\openssl.cnf W:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.2.22\bin>openssl req -x509 -new -out my.root.ca.crt - keyout my.root.ca.key -days 3650 Loading 'screen' into random state - done Generating a 1024 bit RSA private key ....++++++ ........++++++ writing new private key to 'my.root.ca.key' Enter PEM pass phrase:
Enter PEM pass phrase is where I am stuck. It won't let me type anything. And also, am I supposed to come up with my own pass phrase and tell this program to use that, or am I supposed to have a pre-determined pass phrase set by... well... apache, openssl, wamp, etc. I am so lost... lol.
