.pem file format to .key format

Hi There,

Its been a nice day with my aws load balancer without https

When i try to install https i have to do some tricky conversion over the .key to pem.

Now i got the cert-key.pem and cert.pem . The cert-key.pem is my server.key

But my ssl.conf wont accept the cert-key.pem file its only accepting server.key formats

If i put .pem in the ssl.conf apache failed when i try to restart

So how do i convert pem to .key format on linux system
