Subject RE: [users@httpd] Apache 2.0.53 & ssl & virtual hosts
Date Mon, 04 Apr 2005 16:55:13 GMT
Whether SSL configuration resides in ssl.conf or httpd.conf is irrelevant. It may however be
practical to split up the httpd.conf file into several files that will contain the configuration
of a particular functionality and use <Include   > tags to bring it all together.

I personally put all SSL configuration directives that are common to all my virtual hosts
in ssl.conf. Each virtual host may be configured in a different file and will contain directives
such as "SSLEngine On", directives relative to the certificates or "SSLOptions". I also have
a module.conf file that loads the modules I need. The httpd.conf file almost only contains
Include directives.

It's just a matter of organising your configuration in a logical manner that works for you.

Objet : Re: [users@httpd] Apache 2.0.53 & ssl & virtual hosts

My understanding of Apache2 is that the ssl component is completely off-loaded to ssl.conf,
including the virtual hosting and the ip-port listening.  Anyone else please comment because
I am relatively new on Apache and looking to get ssl running properly myself.
