Subject Re: [users@httpd] Probably small problem with SSL config

I would agree that you should start by turning on logging.
Do you get a slightly different error if you use a different browser?
Firefox usually gives more detail than Internet Explorer.

Better not to use <IfModule > in configuration you write yourself unless
you need it for a specific reason. If you use it, then you won't know that
the reason your system doesn't work is that the module is not loaded. If
you don't include <IfModule> and the module is not loaded, HTTPD will give
you an error when it starts up and you will know you need to fix it.
This is particularly bad when an access control directive is in <IfModule >
because it often results in all content becoming accessible to anyone if a
module is missing.

Is the directive "LogLevel" used with "debug" or more ?

The virtualhost can be included in "IfModule ssl_module" :
<IfModule ssl_module>
  <VirtualHost *:443>

Does it work without SSL ?

I’m loading modules ssl_module, authn_dbm_module among others.

chown -Rfv apache_user:apache_group /srv/www/html/your_site/ (?)
