Fwd: Re: [Debian-sf-users] apache-ssl problem

Hi, I found finally some time to do some tests and analyses and got it working now. I added the keyword 'SSLEnable' to all virtualhosts definitions in sf-httpd.conf. With this definition apache-ssl starts and works oke. However, now standard apache doesn't work as it doesn't recognize the new ssl specific keyword. So I have now two versions of sf-httpd.conf, one for apache and one for apache-ssl. Not ideal but it works for now. If I have some time again, I will see if we can integrate it again, or somebody else must have done this already. I have apache-ssl installed.

Thanks for your reactions and advise.

regards, Kees

  Well, that seems to be the problem.  Did you generate an SSL
certificate?  You can't have an HTTPS server without an SSL
key/certificate, and you'll have to make one.  If you were using
libapache-mod-ssl, the command would be mod-ssl-makecert.  I'm not
sure what it is with apache-ssl, please consult the apache-ssl

  Hm.  I'm not sure.  sf-httpd.conf just tells Apache to use SSL,
which requires that you have a working SSL certificate.  If you have
not, then commenting out the include will only remove the requirement
that SSL is enabled, thus allowing Apache to start.
