How to start apache without entering the ssl passphrase ?

You have to create a new passwordless key file from your current key file as shown below:

openssl rsa -in sslkeyfile.key -out sslkeyfilenopassword.key

where sslkeyfile.key is your current keyfile, and sslkeyfilenopassword.key is the newly created one.

Once done, change apache configuration to point to the new key file sslkeyfilenopassword.key and restart apache.
