When I mentioned the URL
I meant for you to replace the "your-hostname" part by your own host's name.

Also, basically I think that this discussion belongs more to the Apache 
user's list, than Tomcat's, because it seems that the SSL part is done 
at the Apache httpd level, not at Tomcat's level.
It is also not easy to just add SSL to an Apache httpd, if this Apache 
httpd uses VirtualHosts.

In the first responses to your first post, some very relevant questions 
were asked, which I don't think you have answered fully yet.  It is 
difficult for someone to help you with the partial information you have 
supplied so far.  Tell us :
- on which platform (OS) this is running
- how Apache httpd and Tomcat are connected together (using mod_jk, 
mod_proxy_ajp, or mod_proxy_http?)
- is (was) your Apache httpd configured with multiple <VirtualHost> 
sections ?
- can you append your main Apache httpd configuration file (httpd.conf 
or apache2.conf, depending on platform).  Don't put it as an attachment, 
because chances are this list will strip it. Paste it right into your 
- what exactly did you add, and where, to add the SSL capability ?
