HTTPS Webserver Configuration


I have configured web server in HTTPS in RedHat ( RHEL5 )

I changed the file

# /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

<VirtualHost 192.168.1.5:80>
Documentroot /var/www/html/
DirectoryIndex index.html
ServerAdmin root@station5.example.com
ServerName station5.example.com
</VirtualHost>

and I created the certificate in

# cd /etc/pki/tls/certs/
# make server.key
# make server.crt
# cp server.key /etc/pki/tls/private/

and then I edited the file

# cd /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf

these are the following lines that I edited

85 ServerName station5.example.com:443
112 SSLCertificateFile /etc/pki/tls/certs/server.crt
119 SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/pki/tls/private/server.key

then I restarted the service httpd

the I opened the brower and then I entered the URL: station5.example.com

it came as http://station5.example.com
I want it to come as https://station5.example.com, automatically

Note: One of my friend told me , ServerAlias should be used , but I cant understand

Kindly please help me , Thanks in advance
