# Secure (SSL/TLS) connections
So you will have to learn as much as possible about how to harden your Apache server should you continue down the production path using XAMPP. (Google is your friend).A matter of security (A MUST READ!)
As mentioned before, XAMPP is not meant for production use but only for developers in a development environment. The way XAMPP is configured, is to be open as possible and allowing the developer anything he/she wants.
For development environments this is great but in a production environment it could be fatal.

You can help yourself.
Ask google with:
"The Apache2.2 service terminated with service-specific error 1 (0x1)"
I get any answer und solutions for this.
Do it - try it - test it - ...

Apache in XAMPP is configured for SSL by default and the mod_ssl.so is uncommented by default unless when you used the setup_xampp.bat file you elected to disable SSL, and if you comment out this module then you won't have SSL on your Apache server - I believe your error is caused by changing the SSL settings incorrectly from the working defaults, because we only have your word that you did it correctly which can't be checked effectively, so the SSL module chucks a wobbly.
Sharley wrote:The Apache configuration file for SSL httpd-ssl.conf must not have any syntax errors and may be where your problem lies - the error.log or the ssl_request.log file may have clues.
So to test SSL was working before your configuration edits, revert your certificates and configurations back to the defaults when installed using the backup files you made and try and open https://localhost and move on from there if all is good - you could also change the port from 443 to say 4433 to see if it really is not a port issue then use https:/localhost:4433 to check.
