    Recovering SSL key? Possible?

    I made a giant mistake yesterday by overwriting the key generated on our web server (say, server.key) which was used to generate the csr file (server.csr). Instead of saving the certificate sent to us by GeoSSL as server.crt I accidentally overwrote server.key.

    Is there any way of restoring this? Or have I cost the school 13? I'm guessing it's the latter.

    You've lost it. However GeoSSL might replace it for free if they are nice?

    No matter. I realised I'd made a backup. I doubt myself sometimes...
