Well you're really quite fast in just closing a bug as you believe you cannot
immediately reproduce it.... a bit impolite IMHO, given that people try to
improve apache and put their time in... nevertheless...

As I've said I believed in the first place that this was an Firefox bug....
therefore I posted most stuff there.

I know that the error message indicates that the cert is not found, but this is
maybe simply wrong.
There are no intermediate certs and there is no reason why mod_ssl shouldn't be
able to locate it. The paths are correct, the certificates are all in place
with the correct names.

Neither am I studpid and thus I know that these are relative paths, the
directory hierarchy IS in place.

So reopening the bug and, again, pointing to the main two issues here:
- something seem to be fishy between FF and Apache, as it works with Chromimum
in both cases
- something seems to be buggy in Apache either Apache or OpenSSL, as it also
works with Apache, but only when I don't use a symlink to the directory.


btw: I know that SSLCADNRequestPath defaults to SSLCACertificatePath, but it
shouldn't hurt to set it, which I do to keep configuration homogeneous among
all our webservers.
