Dragon:  ---------------- End original message. ---------------------
Dragon:  The site came up in my browser (IE7) but showed a certificate error.
Dragon:  The error is that the certificate is not signed by a trusted authority.

Yes, that's why I said in the OP that it was "self-signed".

Interesting that it came up in IE7, as I confirmed it myself.
So other than it being self-signed, what other reason could there be?
All my other self-signed certificates worked in the past with the same
version of Apache, but an earlier version of openssl.
