Subject Re: [users@httpd] Building Apache and SSL
Date Tue, 21 Sep 2004 21:43:35 GMT
When I installed I had a similar problem.

Check the ssl.conf file and make sure that the Listen directive is
³constructed²  in the same manner as the Listen directive in httpd.conf.  I
had to use this syntax.

Listen [::]:443

Hope it helps!
