Apache+SSL certificate problem

Apache+SSL certificate problem

Post by Willis Red » Mon, 24 Mar 1997 04:00:00

I've successfully compiled Apache with SSL support from the SSLeay library,
but when I try to connect to the server with Netscape, nothing happens.
The server is up and running, but it sends nothing to the web browser.  The
server error log gives the message:
        SSLaccept failed

My guess is that this has something to do with the browser not accepting
the servers identification (I used SSLeay to set up my own CA), but I did
successfully load the CA information into Netscape, and created the
required certificate files.  Here is the SSL info. from my httpd.conf

        SSLCACertificatePath  /my/directory
        SSLCACertificateFile  /my/directory/cacert.pem
        SSLCertificateFile   /my/directory/httpsd.pem  #has private key appended
        SSLVerifyClient 0
        SSLVerifyDepth 10

Thanks for any help,

1. Apache-SSL and problems with SSL certificate


  Does anyone know how to generate SSL certificate valid longer than one
month ? I'm using Apache-ssl 1.2.6 and the tool for generating certificates
(ssl-certificate) has no options to extend the default validity time (one
month). Thanks in advance for any help.
