Subject RE: SSL configuration file
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2001 20:41:53 GMT
I feel the httpd-ssl.conf is a decent solution.. The very reason being many
users may not want to have SSL enabled on their webservers (or they'll
mostly enable it as a .so module) - in which case, it's a pain to comment /
uncomment out all the SSL directives.. Also, it enables them to have
different httpd-ssl* files for different purposes..

Because the proxy config is incredibly small.  The SSL config has
been huge.  If the proxy config ever has an example of every config
and a paragraph for each, then I would suggest splitting it out into it's
config file.

The reality is that most people just use the default config, and modify it
fit their needs.  If we put the SSL config in there, we are just making it
harder for them to do that.
