Apache on Windows - httpd.conf or httpd-ssl.conf

Postby Sir_Timbit » 10. July 2013 18:02

Hi there, I hope I have the right section. Simple question.

I'm adding an SSL certificate for Apache on Windows. There are two config files; httpd.conf and httpd-ssl, that have some similar information for adding SSL cert details. I'm not entirely certain which one I should be editing. From what I've been searching, it sounds like only one should be edited though. How would I determine which of the two config file Apache for Windows is reading? Would I just comment out the other config file with #, or is there some other step required to tell Apache to use one file over the other?

Thanks in advance,

It should be reading both files. httpd.conf is the primary Apache config file. httpd-ssl.conf should be included at the bottom of httpd.conf.

You should set all your SSL/certificate information in httpd-ssl.conf.
