Subject Re: [users@httpd] apachectl restart and ssl troubles
Date Mon, 02 Feb 2004 20:24:18 GMT
Hello Ksenia.

Apache does a "configtest" without SSL before restaring the server. This
means that all your SSL directives will result as a error.
You should put conditionals <IfDefine SSL></IfDefine> tags to all the SSL
directives, if you want to have the option to start with SSL or not.
Or instead of this, just remove ALL the <IfDefine SSL></IfDefine> and your
Apache will be SSL enabled -always-.

I hope it helps.
Cheers, Alberto Nakayama.
