SSL Certificates - Quick & Dirty

The Quick & Dirty Way to a Self-Signed Server Certificate

# Remove old key & certificate
rm /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key
rm /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt

# Generate new key with an EMPTY PASSPHRASE!
# Use "cd /usr/share/ssl/certs; make genkey"
# instead if you really need a passphrase
/usr/bin/openssl genrsa 1024 > /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key

# Set appropriate permissions
chmod go-rwx /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key

# Now create the new certificate
cd /usr/share/ssl/certs
make testcert

# And restart Apache
/sbin/service httpd restart
I always forget this, so I thought I'll post it as a How-To.

NOTICE: This works on Fedora Core 3. Don't use this on FC4!
/(bb|[^b]{2})/ -- that is the question!
