*Use open ssl to extract the private key and the cert file

# Export the private key file from the pfx file
openssl pkcs12 -in filename.pfx -nocerts -out key.pem

# Export the certificate file from the pfx file
openssl pkcs12 -in filename.pfx -clcerts -nokeys -out cert.pem

# This removes the passphrase from the private key so Apache won't
# prompt you for your passphase when it starts

openssl rsa -in key.pem -out server.key
