Hi Experts,

OK i'm very very new to SSL certificates but here goes.

We have a wildcard certificate with an SSL provider (startssl) and I want to place this on my apache server.

I already have what I think is the full key called my-domain.pfx (I was told I could use the openssl command to extract the private / public keys from this?)

On my apache server at present I went through a userguide on how to install a self signed cert and i ended up with 2 files; ssl.crt and ssl.key

My question is how can I get the same 2 files from my file mydomain.pfx

Many thanks !
Shaun
