Question SSL problems


I am trying to setup my Apache server for SSL. It works for http, but not for htpps. I have my certs installed; I have activated SSL through the http server setting (gui). When I try to connect to https: I get a "The page cannot be displayed" page that says "cannot find server or DNS Error" at the bottom. However, when I connect to the address:443 it connects, but unsecured. I have done more reading in Apache SSL setup then my last history class. I can't figure this one out. Your help is appreciated.

Looks like an Apache startup problem:

Usually, one starts Apache by issuing:

# /path/to/apache/bin/apachectl start
or
# /path/to/apache/bin/httpd

but to start it with SSL, you need to issue:

# /path/to/apache/bin/apachectl startssl
or
# /path/to/apache/bin/httpd -DSSL -f /path/to/apache/conf/httpd.conf

I used httpd -DSSL and Apache asked for my passphrase. It is up and running, but still no https.

Can you post the errors from /var/log/apache/error.log or /var/log/httpd/error.log ?

What is that strange file I can see requested ?

/var/www/html/scripts/nsiislog.dll

Haven't you blocked your 443 port by the firewall in your system ?
That would allow Apache to start in SSL mode, but without apparently response.

I'd googled for: " Invalid method in request !L!! " , and there are interesting suggestions about the config file.
Take a look and check out your config file:
Listen directives, virtual hosts, etc...
