Subject [users@httpd] SSL on Apache 2.2.14
Date Wed, 25 Nov 2009 17:23:10 GMT

Hopefully someone will be able to help, as I've been working on this  
problem for quite a while and have hit a wall.  I'm trying to upgrade  
Apache 2.0.47 to 2.2.14, and I need SSL support.  Everything seems to  
build and compile okay, but when I try to access my site running on  
2.2.14, I get a strange error from Firefox: "Secure connection  
failed.  An error occurred during a connection to xxxxxx.  SSL peer  
reports incorrect Message Authentication Code.  (Error code:  

I've tried compiling with OpenSSL 0.9.8L and 0.9.8G with the same  
results.  This is hosted on a Solaris sparc box.  The 2.2.14 server is  
utilizing all the same files and SSL certificates as the 2.0.47  
server.  I've called Verisign; I have valid certificates, but they've  
never heard of this error before.  If I self-sign a certificate and  
test it with the 2.2.14 server, it seems to work (except for the  
expected error message regarding self-signed certificates).

Searching on Google has led me to try forcing Apache to compile with  
prefork enabled (but it seems to default to that anyway on Solaris).   
I've also tried statically linking Apache during compile with the same  

If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, I'd very much appreciate them...

Thank you,
