Subject Trying to Configure SSL with Tomcat 6
Date Fri, 23 Jan 2009 17:35:31 GMT

> The problem with the SSL is that the Tomcat server is not using the
> certificate.  When it starts, depending on the exact options chosen in
> the server.xml file for the port 8443 listener section, it does one of
> the following:
> It will either fail to start listening on port 8443 at all, or
> It will listen on port 8443, but not encrypt communications.  (It's
> not using the certificate.)
> From what I can tell with keytool, the certificate appears to be fine.
> I don't understand how Tomcat knows which key in the keystore to use,
> or how it knows the keystore password.  (I don't think it does.)  It's
> even generating an error in one of its log files that says it's having
> trouble opening the keystore, which I believe is because it does not
> have the password, but when I enter that information with the options
> needed for specifying the keystore password in the server.xml file,
> that port 8443 listener does not start at all.  It's as if I have the
> wrong syntax.  The documentation I'm using is just whatever I can find
> on the Internet
> Any suggestions you can offer would be appreciated.
