Thank you, Alan!

Found it! The password is correct in the eap file.

How do I go about re-generating the private key & certificate as you mentioned before?

  No, it's in the EAP module configuration.  mods-available/eap.  Look for "password".

  It might have changed OpenSSL.  Which then might change things.  But it's hard to say.

  It won't have changed the FreeRADIUS configuration.
