Subject [users@httpd] problem setting https:// in local server
Date Fri, 03 Dec 2010 12:12:10 GMT
Hello list,

I have no issue making virtual domain in a local-server with apache vhost technique, so users
within the intranet can access those  virtual domains, once they have the proper entry in
their  own /etc/hosts file.  But the problem is  with virtual domains having SSL support.
Visiting such sites from workstation within the intranet through firefox reports

 SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.

(Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)

Obviously the domain entry is already there in the /etc/hosts of the workstation from where
the site is called ; like

Could anyone suggest any clue which cause the problem ? ( there is nothing available in the
log )

Here is the configuration of such a SSL enable virtual domain

Listen 400


SSLEngine on
# Here, I am allowing only "high" and "medium" security key lengths.

# Here I am allowing SSLv3 and TLSv1, I am NOT allowing the old SSLv2.
SSLProtocol all -SSLv2

#   Server Certificate:
SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/mycert/server.crt

#   Server Private Key:
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache2/mycert/ssl.key
