Subject RE: [users@httpd] Apache SSL - using port 80 & 443 for same IP address & Server Name
Date Fri, 08 Nov 2002 10:00:22 GMT
Your configuration is exactly correct and I don't think the problem lies
with apache. "server could not be found" could be many things (what
browser is this?):

- that the browser could not resolve the server name to an IP address
(hence DNS problems). If this, use nslookup to test the DNS.

- that the server did not respond to the request (is apache really
running? is it really listening on port 80 and 443?) If this, check the
IP address of your server matches that in DNS (ifconfig -a to check
that) and then check you are listening on the ports (netstat -a | grep
80, netstat -a | grep 443).

What does it say in the common error log when you try to start apache?
Do you get the "could not be found" on both HTTP and HTTPS?
