Subject RE: [users@httpd] Problem when mixing NameVirtualHost + non with SSL - "Oops, no RSA or DSA server certificate found?!"
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2005 11:02:02 GMT
I think you need to post the VH segments from your config... 

Your set up is clearly quite complicated and it's impossible to see what the error is based
just on descriptions. My interpretation so far is that you have a VH somewhere which is defined
as SSL but which does not contain an SSLCertificateFile directive.
