ssl cert installation, and passkey removal?

Posted on 2009-05-04
Last Modified: 2013-11-15
I recently purchased a cert from Thawte, and i'm running nginx, on a ubuntu 8.10 intrepid distro.
When stopping/starting the nginx it asks for the passkey I made when I created the cert.
What is the best way to link/edit/whatever so that in the event of a reboot, human intervention is not required?

silly question but will that work for a .key?  as opposed to the .pem?
