I am trying to set up SSL in Apache but when I go to the server in Firefox I get the following error message:
An error occurred during a connection to sludge.home.
SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.
(Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)
My virtual host config file looks like this.
<IfDefine SSL> <VirtualHost *:443> ServerName sludge.home SSLEngine on SSLCertificateFile /usr/local/apache/cert/server.crt SSLCertificateKeyFile /usr/local/apache/cert/server.pem SSLProtocol -SSLv2 SSL CipherSuite HIGH:!ADH:!EXP:!MD5:!NULL DocumentRoot "/usr/local/apache/htdocs" ServerAdmin email@example.com <Location /> AuthType Digest AuthName "private area" AuthDigestDomain / AuthDigestProvider file AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/passwd/digest_pw Require valid-user </Location> <Directory /usr/local/apache/htdocs/bugz> AddHandler cgi-script .cgi Options +Indexes +ExecCGI DirectoryIndex index.cgi AllowOverride Limit FileInfo Indexes </Directory> <Directory /usr/local/apache/htdocs/bugzilla> AddHandler cgi-script .cgi Options +Indexes +ExecCGI DirectoryIndex index.cgi AllowOverride Limit FileInfo Indexes </Directory> <Directory /> Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None Order deny,allow Deny from all </Directory> <Directory "/usr/local/apache/htdocs"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Allow Override None Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> <IfModule dir_module> DirectoryIndex index.html </IfModule> <FilesMatch "^\.ht"> Order allow,deny Deny from all Satisfy All </FilesMatch> </VirtualHost> </IfDefine>
A telnet to this server reveals that server is sending plain HTML back. Further more it seems as though mod_ssl is not loaded/working even though when I
httpd -l it shows up as being statically compiled in.
I have exhausted most avenues I can think of.
