I have a working installation of Apache v2.0 with SSL. I am attempting to configure v2.2.11 (also v2.2.4 with the same results). I have created fresh certificates, keys, etc. and the v2.2.11 server prompts for the pass phrase as with v2.0 and starts as expected. Unsecure pages are served nicely via port 80; however, the SSL port 443 complains that the whatever/something.html
cannot be found, even though the error message (404) is served via port 443. I have removed all REQUIRE SSL
etc. options from the associated .htaccess
file, and if I remove the s
from the https
construct in the URL address as submitted by the browser, then the pages will be served . . .via port 80.
I've basically taken the configuration from the v2.0 ssl.conf
file and incorporated into the ./extra/httpd-ssl.conf
of v2.2.11. I've discovered a few nuances such as the <VirtualHost _default_:443>
construct in v2.0 had to be changed to <VirtualHost 192.168.1.73:443>
which is the IP address within the LAN, i.e., inside a NetGear FVX538 VPN Router.
QUESTION: Has anyone dealt with this or a similar problem? . . .got to be something simple, perhaps a default document path in the httpd-ssl.conf
file. BTW, I haven't ruled out a firewall problem withing the NetGear router.
