I recently purchased my first wildcard SSL certificate and I am trying to use it to secure the connection between my site (Cent OS 6 VPS) and an Amazon EC2 instance running Ubuntu 12.04.
My primary site currently has a wildcard subdomain configured, *.mysite.com, with which the wildcard SSL is working. I am trying to use the SSL with secure.mysite.com, a CNAME record pointing to my EC2 instance public DNS.
I was able to locate several tutorials on installing SSL certificates on EC2 instances and Route 53 looks promising, but I am not sure which path to start down. I am fairly new to dealing with SSL certificates and this type of DNS configuration.
The EC2 instance's security group includes HTTPS (443) but a ping of port 443 on the instance reveals that it is closed. When I attempt to navigate to https://secure.mydomain.com, I immediately receive a "Web Page Not Available" error - http://secure.mydomain.com works fine (loads the EC2 instance).
Any guidance on this matter would be helpful, thank you!
