Hello. Is there a way to remove the passphrase from a certificate considering it has already been issued and activated by a CA?
I mean, what happens now is that I’ve purchased a certificate with a CA from Namecheap and activate it, they issued me a few certificate files which I combined and properly set it up on my nginx server, however, every time I have to restart nginx I’m asked for the passphrase
What I don’t’ understand is that I’ve executed the command which removes the passphrase from the certificate before submitting its CSR to the CA…
Is there a way I can safely remove the passphrase from my certificate considering it was already issued by the CA and is active on my server? Thanks in advance.
