Not able to connect https server.


I am using HP-UX 11.11 with
hpuxwsApache A. HP-UX Apache-based Web Server

pre installed.

The normal version of Apache (http) is working fine, but secure version (https) is not working at all.

I have created private key and also created Certificate for my server.

I have also configured for private key and certificate locations in ssl.conf file and
restarted the apache, but still I am not
able to connect the server using https.

Even error_log is also not showing errors, what could be the problem?

I want to implement https, please help.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Not able to connect https server.


It would help to know what document you used or procedure to create the certificate. If that is wrong, it could explain the issue. Or a production mistake.

Check the configuration files are correct when referring to the certifcate.

netstat -an | grep ":443 "

Make sure it is listening.

This document may help:

This document refers to a document that shipped with hpws

In /opt/hpws may be the guide you are in need of.

Properly done https configuration includes these log files (Linux) ssl_error_log ssl_access_log

Any clues there?

Re: Not able to connect https server.

Thanks Steve,

Actually I started apache as

# apachectl start

instead of

# apachectl startssl

To start the HP-UX Apache-based Web Server with SSL capability
one has to use startssl option.

Thanks for the links.
