Where can I find a (comprehensible) guide to installing SSL on Apache running on Ubuntu?
Posted on 2011-09-06
I have the LAMP stack installed and working on Ubuntu 11.04 server, as well as the gnome UI. The Apache version is 2.2 and I also have the libssl0.9.8 installed to enable the use of SSL. I have setup a couple of virtual servers for different projects that run on their own IP addresses. I need to configure one of these to use SSL so I can start the process of creating the web content to allow secure logins and differing content based on who is logged in. My current issue is trying to get the HTTPS web pages working.
Please feel free to suggest any command line testing you would need me to do if you need more information. For someone who is new to Apache the overwhelming number of configuration options, in a myriad of configuration files, can be daunting.
I would really like to find something that EXPLAINS why the SSL setup is handled in a particular way as well... Understanding the process would trump just getting a "to do" list.
