I am working hard to deal with tons of problems on linux regarding SSL to enhance the security.However,first question is always the most thorny one I've ever seen.
My Apache,MySQL and PHP is working fine now.However,I want to enhance the security by installing mod_ssl.<---RPM.After I installed it,I typed https://mysiteaddress:8080 and nothing happens. I followed my book's procedure but...By the way,I have discovered that I can't find libssl.so in the path of /usr/lib. Is that causing the problem?And do I need to configure apache configuration file to make it work?is that file named ssl.conf rather than httpd.conf?
Thank you very much,Tomasfuego.I add :8080 because my web server is listening to port 8080 (My ISP has blocked port 80).However,I don't really have a clue on configuring SSL.As far as I know,SSL setting has resided from the httpd.conf file.
alright ... after you installed the mod_ssl rpms, then there should be an entry on which port SSL will operate on. Usually, it is 443, but it looks like you will need to change that too. https://mysite.com:8080 is still going to send it to the regular http protocol and not what we want, so accessing will look like
Thanks for your reply,Tomasfuego. I can connect to my server with SSL support.However,the webpage is the default page of Apache!! I have replaced all my webpage to my serving folder.It works well when I use port 8080.So,my question is,how to change this dumb default page??
