Setting up secure apache2 webserver https access on suse linux 9.2


Hello everyone. This is my first time posting a question on this forum. I have been a member for a while, and I have learned alot from this site. My question is I am demoing Suse Linux 9.2 Pro to a client and I cannot figure out how to get the webserver to accept https request. Can someone advise me on how to setup Apache2 on Suse Linux 9.2 Pro so it can accept both http and https connections? Thanks for all the help.

Well, you need mod_ssl installed and activated. Then you need an SSL cert that matches your domain (you'll get a browser warning if it doesn't) and then you need to have said cert signed by a CA (or you'll get a different browser warning).

I know this is kind of vague, but your post was too

I verified that mod_ssl is installed and activated in the apache2 configuration file. I also generated a self-signed certificate with my domain information. I also enabled ssl under YAST, but when I go onto my browser and type a http URL it works, but when I type a https URL is says "page cannot be found". Thanks for the help.

Did you tell Apache to Listen on 443?

Get webmin to set it up for you. It's not on the discs so you can download from

location postfix message two days ago on this distro

Note also use apache2ctl startssl

If you don't use webmin you need to modify listen in the apache conf file. I tried asking Suse before on this and never got an answer. Mandrrake has all this preloaded so that is easier. i think Suse wants you to use the enterprise version when you go to this level (They sent me the enterprise discs free but doe'snt appear to work on 64 bits for amd64 so I am still stuck with 9.1.)
