Simpler Navigation for Servers and Operating Systems
Completed: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We combined many of the older boards, so you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. Check the consolidated boards here as many sub-forums are now single boards.

Apache 2.2.15

All -



This is should be really simple, but it's not - typical.  I have the above mentioned apache version running on an 11.31 system - with Default self-signed certificates and default out of the box config for httpd.conf - when I attempt to open the web page:  https://x.x.x.x I receive this error in Firefox:


Secure Connection Failed


An error occurred during a connection to x.x.x.x.

SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.

(Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)

I need to know how to start Apache with SSL - in the older versions of apache the startup file /etc/rc.config.d/


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



additionally I've noticed other servers we have, use: "/opt/hpws22/apache/bin/httpd -d /opt/hpws22/apache -k start -DSSL" - is this  "-DSSL" option necessary?  Or just an entry of "Listen:443" in httpd.conf?


What could be wrong?

Today is different and tomorrow the same.

I need to know how to start Apache with SSL - in the older versions of apache, the startup file "/etc/rc.config.d/hpws_apache" had two options, one for starting Apache and another for starting Apache with SSL, however, this is gone in Apache 2.2.x
