How Do I properly Enable SSL?

Postby biztastic » 09. December 2008 18:50

I want my website, or some pages to be https, not http. How do I do this? I have used the makecert.bat and then after making a certificate I go to my website at https but it says "Failed to load" "Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection."

I used search for SSL and it said that phrase is too common, so I used search for enable ssl and it said that phrase is too common. So the search feature of this board seems bugged.

I have searched all over google, why is it such a secret on how to enable ssl?

When I enable in httpd.conf "Listen 443" then Apache will not start, if I comment out Listen 443 like #Listen 443 then Apache will start, so I dunno why

SSL is already enabled in XAMPP.

All the relevant folders are in .\xampp\apache\conf and there is some informative reading in those folders.

The SSL configuration file is in .\xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-ssl.conf and so any configuration edits are made in this file not in the default httpd.conf file.

...and yes the forum search facility is broken after the forum upgrade.
