Subject [users@httpd] SSL and directories
Date Thu, 06 Oct 2005 19:28:19 GMT
Hello to all.

I'm pretty new to apache and ssl.  I have httpd-2.0.46-46.3.ent.centos.1 and 
mod_ssl-2.0.46-46.3.ent.centos.1 installed on a CentOS 3.3 box.  I have an 
SSL cert installed, and SSLCertificateFile and SSLCertificateKey locations 
specified correctly in ssl.conf.  I have a web mail app which I'm now able to 
access via SSL (but I did the SSL config in the app itself), so I'm pretty 
confident the basic SSL setup is correct.

I want to access another web-based program (Mailwatch for MailScanner, no SSL 
config directives in the program) via SSL.  According to everything I read, I 
should add the directive:

<Directory /var/www/html/mailscanner>

to my httpd.conf file.  When I do this, and restart httpd, I get a 403 error.  
The httpd error log reads "access to var/www/html/mailscanner/ failed, 
reason: SSL connection required".

This is driving me crazy.  Would someone be kind enough to point out my 

Many thanks.
