Subject Re: [users@httpd] Unable to set ciphers string with space separated in apache
Date Mon, 27 Aug 2018 13:33:02 GMT

If you want to continue exploring, you would want to quote the cipher
string, since httpd would take apart unquotes, space separated tokens as
different httpd directive arguments, and you surely don't want that.
