Apache 2 & SSL

I'm rapidly reaching my wits end here, seriously...I'm going crazy trying to get this apache server to use SSL...HELP!

All actual IP addresses have been removed and/or replaced with "IP"


I already have apache installed on RHEL3 working on port 80. If I change Listen in httpd.conf to 443 I get the following error with FireFox:

Quote:IP has sent an incorrect or unexpected message. Error Code: -12281.
In /www/log/access_log I see:

[23/May/2006:11:32:19 -0500] "\x80g\x01\x03" 200 27497
[23/May/2006:11:32:40 -0500] "\x80g\x01\x03" 200 27497



So I tried to start from scratch and recompile apache with openssl

tar xvzf openssl-0.9.8b.tar.gz
cd openssl-0.9.8b
make test
make install
make clean


cd httpd-2.2.2
./configure --prefix /usr/local/apache2 --enable-mods-shared=all --enable-ssl --with-ssl=/usr/bin/openssl
make install
make clean
mkdir /usr/local/apache2/conf/ssl.crt
mkdir /usr/local/apache2/conf/ssl.key
openssl req -new -out server.csr
openssl rsa -in privkey.pem -out server.key
openssl x509 -in server.csr -out server.crt -req -signkey server.key -days 365
rm privkey.pem
rm server.csr
mv server.crt /usr/local/apache2/conf/ssl.crt/
mv server.key /usr/local/apache2/conf/ssl.key/


I added the paths to httpd-ssl.conf for the crt and key file, I changed Listen from 80 to 443, I tried changing it to the servers IP address:443 and I still get;


Quote:[root@myserver root]# /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl start(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address IP:443

no listening sockets available, shutting down

Unable to open logs

iptables is stopped and using port 80 works just fine. What the hell is going on here?


lsof -i tcp:443
netstat -lan |grep :443
netstat -pan |grep LISTEN

All show nothing listening on 443


I really need help here, I'm very very confused to why this is not working.

I took out Listen 443 and commented out duplicates in httpd-ssl.conf and it actually started. Perhaps I just needed a day to get my head straight.
