Subject Re: can we haz backports?
Date Fri, 12 Jan 2018 12:38:48 GMT

Yann: it is not working (anymore) when you have only port 443 open.
Yann: I am/was testing in real live, no boulder.
Eric: proposed change:  to begin with warns/errors user

I am talking about SSL configurations without port 80 open. It is not 
an individual issue, there are more around with no port 80 open. So it 
is not only for me !!!

At least you can make a change that warns/errors to user when you 

server seems not reachable via http: (port 80->80) and reachable via 
https: (port 443->443)

and update the documentation.

No, I do not want to veto, just to point strong  out that there are 
functions which are not supported.

I am a tester, just reporting what happens to improve Apache. I 
understand that you are disappointed and appreciate your work.
