Subject [users@httpd] More ssh setup question
Date Thu, 03 May 2018 13:29:27 GMT


Ok ... some of the guidance I see/hear refers to the setting up a 
.ssh/authorized_keys directory for each user that logs in ...   However, 
if I understand correctly (?) this would be the case for individuals... 
logging onto some other remote server?

For the set up of a https-enabled website, then, you are saying I don't 
need to set up an .ssh/authorized_keys file?

In other words, for Apache, I would /only /need to use something like 
this in my httpd-vhosts.conf file

        NameVirtualHost *:443

        <VirtualHost *:443>
        DocumentRoot /var/www/site
        SSLEngine on
        SSLCertificateFile /path/to/www_yoursite_com.crt
        SSLCertificateKeyFile /path/to/www_yoursite_com.key
        SSLCertificateChainFile /path/to/DigiCertCA.crt

Also, it seem some administrators include / configure the httpd-ssl.conf 
file, and others do not... they just use the httpd-vhosts.conf file (?) 
... do we need to use httpd-ssl.conf ?

For instance, one Youtube ( 
) says use Mod SSL:

Any guidance would help...
