Subject RE: Setting up Apache/Tomcat for SSL
Date Fri, 15 Dec 2000 10:33:26 GMT
Hi Guy,
I posted Jans' directions for installing apache+modssl+mod_jk+tomcat a couple of weeks ago.
If that is what you meant then the url is:

Two snippets (sp?) of my httpd.conf are below but this is autogenerated if you follow the
instructions in the link above. To use the default ports 80/443 on Solaris you need
root access and for them to be unused at present.

Hope this helps,

Mike C.

Port 5180

Yes, I'm reading furiously on the appropriate sites.  My question is about configuration.
 I read that to run both a secure server and non-secure server on the same instance of Apache,
one of them must be virtual.  The example given is for secure to be the non-virtual server,
and it shows a server name of; non-secure is virtual with a server name
of something like  However, the typical way of doing this is to have them
both with a server name of, with secure accessed through https on port 443
and non-secure through http on port 80.  Can this be done?  I'm trying to use mod_ssl.
Also, could the kind person who provided a link to a pre-built mod_ssl enabled Apache please
repost it?  I tried searching the digest site, and found that the search mechanism is broken.
 Thanks.  (Our production environment is Solaris, development is Windows NT/2000).
