I'm sure that you will need to include the Private Key Chain in your PEM file to resolve this error.
Have a look at http://www.digicert.com/ssl-support/pem-ssl-creation.htm which shows the different ways of creating the PEM file.
Although now that I think about it, I don't remember if I had to include this in mine the last time I created a Self Signed certificate so I could be wrong on the self signed front. However, I would recommend the full PEM file when you go live.
I have been getting this error now no matter what I do when trying to setup and HTTPS listener with a self signed cert.
"/etc/pound/pound.cfg line 56: SSL_CTX_use_PrivateKey_file failed - aborted"
I have generated the ssl cert in myriad different ways, always with the same result. I have tried with pound 2.5 and 2.6 (from ubuntu precise and quantal respectively) but there is no change! The certificates test ok with the openssl command line so I am at a complete loss!
Most of the info I have found on the net is from a few years back, could this be a new bug?
