SSL problem

Something to do with Apache or Cobalt?

I am having difficulty getting SSL to work on a Cobalt RAQ4 with OpenSSL and mod_ssl.

I tried to use the built in Cobalt method but all this appears to do is crash both Apache and the mailserver too.

So, I tried doing everything manually.
The httpd.conf looks something like this...

# global ssl setup
<IfModule mod_ssl.c>
SSLSessionCache dbm:/var/log/httpd/ssl_scache
SSLSessionCacheTimeout 300
SSLMutex file:/var/log/httpd/ssl_mutex
SSLRandomSeed startup file:/dev/urandom 512
SSLRandomSeed connect builtin

Listen IPaddress:443

<VirtualHost www.widgetwidgets.com:443>
SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile /home/sites/site3/certs/certificate
SSLCertificateKeyFile /home/sites/site3/certs/key
SSLSessionCacheTimeout 600
SSLLogFile /home/sites/site3/ssl.log

Apache is running quite happily and not reporting any errors but if I try to access HTTPS I get the "page is unavailbe" message.

I've tried putting DocumentRoot in the VirtualHost but this makes no difference.

Any help would be most appreciated!
