I trying to get my SSL certificate to work with apache2 on ubuntu.

Chrome gives me just the error: Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED):

On this config: ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost

# MSIE 7 and newer should be able to use keepalive

How can i fix it?

  • add a netstat -tlupn output. – Mike Feb 4 '13 at 7:55
  • also providing apache2ctl -S would tell us what apache configuration is – mateusz.kijowski Feb 4 '13 at 9:06

Connection refused suggests that either Apache is not listening on port 443 or there is a firewall rejecting your connection on the apache host or somewhere in between.

If apache is not listening for connections (you can check it with netstat -ntpl | grep :443) you should add an appropriate Listen directive to your configuration, such as

Listen 443
