https problem

Msg#: 4333693 posted 4:10 pm on Jul 1, 2011 (gmt 0)

I am new to Apache and just joined the forum.
I tried to setup a https connection. First I forwarded the port in my router and opened the same port on the firewall. I followed the instruction according to this url: [rubayathasan.com...]
After I modified the scripts in httpd.conf and httpd-ssl.conf, the apache window service cannot start anymore. If I commented out the line
"Include conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf"
in httpd.conf, the Apache service can start but obviously https won't work.
Would anyone be kind enough to inform me how to resolve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

The answer likely depends on the configuration you've defined in the /conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf file.

Also, we're assuming that your ISP will pass incoming SSL traffic on port 443 to your server -- an assumption that I would not be willing to make with most ISPs.

If you're trying to host this site "at home" or "at the office," then your best bet might be to host this site on a 'real' server, where ISP connection restrictions won't exist.
