If I have Apache booting up to support SSL at system startup, how do I pass my passphrase to the Apache startup through the OS X boot process. I have read that the process can/will hang due to this problem.....?

    AFAIK, putting the passphrase in the startup sequence would defeat the purpose of having one in the first place. It's unlikely that you'll be able to do this. You'll either have to start Apache manually, or build a new certificate without a passphrase. I tend to do the latter, since there's no one else who can log in to my system and muck with the server, anyway.



    HTH,
