Converting a PFX Certificate to a PEM Certificate
This section describes a process you can use to convert the format an SSL certificate for Windows
uses to a format the Apache server can use. For more information about converting formats, refer to
OpenSSL user guide.
Converting the format an SSL certificate for Windows uses to a format that Apache can use, do the
1. On the Apache server, open the command line in Windows.
2. Navigate to the OpenSSL installation, which is typically located in
C:\Apache Software Found\Apache2.2\bin
3. At the command line, type:
openssl pkcs12 -in filename.pfx -nocerts -out key.pem
Press Enter. This exports the private key file from the pfx file.
4. At the command line, type
openssl pkcs12 -in filename.pfx -clcerts -out key.pem
Press Enter. This exports the certificate file from the pfx file.
5. At the command line, type:
openssl rsa -in key.pem -out server.key
Press Enter. This removes the passphrase from the private key so that Apache does not prompt
you for a password when it is starting.
6. In each of the exported files, change the extension from .pem to .crt.(??)
