I'm trying to setup an SSL enabled Apache Server on a Linux Box.  The
SSL patch adds a couple of directives in the httpd.conf file.  What's
the difference when your Server Certificate is not combined with your
private key, or your Server Certificate is not encoded with a private
key?


Thanks

It depends on the format of key you have from your key signing authority
thats all. SSLeay also comes with a set of tools for manipulating 
certificate formats

Note btw: I notice you talk about the SSLeay patch.. if you are using SSLeay
and the SSL patch to apache rather than the commercial ones in the USA then
owning to the stupid US concept of patenting mathematical statements of
fact (like RSA) you will be violating US patent law if you run it
