I am trying to setup apache-ssl to allow the domains I host to have a secure webpage. I have made a cert for testing with openssl and installed apache-ssl.
I read thru all the docs on how to configure the server but I canít get the name resolution to work. For example I have a domain that resolves http://www.abc123.com but if I try to go to https://www.abc123.com it always goes to the placeholder page no mater how I have the /etc/apache-ssl/httpd.conf configured.
This is on a Debian sarge box.
Can some one lead me in the right direction on how to get this to work with at least one site so that I can start populating them to others?
You are trying to use https which does not work with name based virtual hosting. You have to use IP based virtual hosting.
Basically in your conf file, use
(comment out NameVirtualHost *)
Listen xx.xx.xx.xx:443 (If multiple IP address or just use 443 is single IP)
Certificate should be issued to www.abc123.com
After starting the server, you can test it with a browser or an openssl client i.e
openssl s_client -connect www.abc123.com:443
