    Enabling apache-SSL

    What files need to be edited to enable apache to work in SSL mode (https), port 443?

    thanks in advance,
    Jim

    hi,

    the mod_ssl module is loaded in /etc/apache/httpd.conf so it should be enabled.
    other modules, like PHP, server-info & server-status also work fine ...
    only problem is that the httpd.conf is write-proteced (linked), so i copied it to alt.conf, edited that file and enabled the modules i wanted and used "apache -f /etc/apache/alt.conf"

    i searched around a bit and found this :

    it seems you need to install a certificate to enable SSL ??

    I tried various other things, including creating a certificate, was not able to get it to work on port 443 using SSL yet.

    Ok,

    I got it working after this:

    I used the (installed) libapache-mod-ssl package to create certificates.
    Go to /usr/share/doc/libapache-mod-ssl/examples
    Unzip gid-mkcert.sh.gz and run it.
    Fill out all the fields, and a bunch of server.* and ca.* files will be created in the current directory.
    (remember the pass phrases you use).

    Copy the .key files (ca.key and server.key) to /etc/apache/ssl.key
    Copy the .crt files (ca.crt and server.crt) to /etc/apache/ssl.crt
    Copy the .crs files (ca.crs and server.crs) to /etc/apache/ssl.crs

    Add the following to /etc/apache/httpd.conf:

    Code:
    Listen 80
    Listen 443
    And:

    Code:
    <VirtualHost _default_:443>
         DocumentRoot /var/www
         ServerName My.server.com
         ServerAdmin webmaster@my.server.com
         ErrorLog /var/log/apache/ssl_error_log
         TransferLog /var/log/apache/ssl_access_log
         SSLEngine On
         SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt
         SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache/conf/ssl.key/server.key
        <Files ~ "\.(cgi|shtml|php)$">
          SSLOptions +StdEnvVars
        </Files>
        <Directory "/cgi-bin">
          SSLOptions +StdEnvVars
        </Directory>
        SetEnvIf User-Agent ".*MSIE.*" nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown
        CustomLog /var/log/apache/ssl_request_log \
          "%t %h %{SSL_PROTOCOL}x %{SSL_CIPHER}x \"%r\" %b"
    </VirtualHost>
    Restart the httpd server:

    Code:
    /etc/init.d/apache restart
    You will be asked for the RSA pass phrase.

    Regards,

    IKK
