    Apache on Windows with SSL.

    Been desparetly trying to get SSL working in apache today. Cerated the key and certificate files using open SSL, uncommented the line to load the modSSL module, and the line that loads the ssl.conf file, and I've edited the files with the correct locations of the certificate files etc.

    However it doesn't work!!!! The apache services won't start. If I comment out the line that calls the ssl.conf file, then it starts ok, so something in this file is causing the service to stall, but I dion't know what! Are there any really obvious bits I'm missing, something else that needs changing?? I've tried following several on-line guides but none of the tips contained in them have worked for me.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Mike.

    And yes I know, apache on windows, why not lynix I hear you cry? I'm forced to use windows by our LEA who provide our webserver unfortunitely!

    Re: Apache on Windows with SSL.

    what version of apache and ssl? I've had terrible problems with mod_ssl crashing with apache depending on what it was built with. Eventually I had to build my own with visual c++ 6!

    Re: Apache on Windows with SSL.

    It was downloaded as a package (apache_2.2.6-win32-x86-openssl-0.9.8e.msi) but I've tried other versions as well, with no luck. I'm sure I'm blatently doing something wrong, but I can't find a definitive guide, and the help on the apache site is way to indepth for me.

    All I want is an SSL connection. It can't be that hard, but so far wasted the best part of a day trying to achieve it.

    Just sussed this out.

    There was an error on starting, problem with the SSL.conf file (didn't realise if you start apache from command prompt you get more details on the error!) Googled it, and found it was quite a common error. Now fixed and working! Woohooo!

    Mike.
