Subject [users@httpd] apache + ssl: client denied by server configuration
Date Fri, 26 Jan 2007 17:04:12 GMT
I am trying to get SSL up and running on my new apache server.  The
server starts up just fine and serves up regular pages on port 80, but
when I direct it towards the SSL port, Firefox give me an error:

"bv.<domain>.com has sent an incorrect or unexpected message.
Error Code: -12263"

When I look at the apache error log, I get this:

client denied by server configuration: /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/

what is strange is that I am not using /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/
anywhere in the httpd.conf file. I have searched and searched the
config file for htdocs and it simply is not there.  Any thoughts?


P.S.  Here is my complete httpd.conf file:
