Subject Re: [users@httpd] SSL Handshake Exception in call from Android
Date Sat, 03 Nov 2018 00:10:11 GMT
Hi Jeffrey,  Thanks for the quick response.

I set the LogLevel to debug.  I'm getting a ton of debug info 
everywhere.  However, the https requests from my app are not even 
showing up in any logs.... not even the virtual host access or error 
logs or the apache system logs.  Nada... nothing.  As if the calls were 
never made.  Just to make sure there wasn't something else wrong, I 
changed https:// to http:// in my app, and everything works, including a 
ton of debug info in all of the logs.  But as soon as I use https, it 
looks like the requests aren't even making it into httpd.  But again.... 
the whole site works fine in https when using a browser.

Any ideas?  Am I not looking at the right place for the logs?

I am getting the following exception in my Android app:

with https that I do not own with no problem.  So I'm assuming I have something wrong in
my httpd config.  But I need some help figuring it out.

work when called from my Android app. It also works fine if I use http instead of https. 
But I need https.
