I am trying to get SSL working with the SecurePages module on an Ubuntu 9.x server running Drupal 6.10 in a multisite configuration. I have purchased an SSL certificate from GoDaddy, and I have a self-signed certificate as well.
Using the self-signed certificate for a real site is not an option because of the warning messages presented by the browser. So, the GoDaddy certificate is the one I want to use. It is for a specific one of the several sites I have in my multisite installation. When I modify the default-ssl config file in the apache2/sites-available directory to point to the GoDaddy certificate, key, and intermediary certificate, I get the following error:
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.
If I use the self-signed certificate with the SecurePages module enabled, upon logging into the site, I go to the SecurePages configuration page, but the Enable radio button is disabled, and if I click on the link that tells me to "go here", I get a 404 error for the https version of /admin/build/securepages.
I'm absolutely baffled by what is going on here. I have followed a tutorial / how-to for configuring ssl here that seemed pretty good. Apache tells me that mod_ssl is enabled, and I have enabled the default-ssl site.
Any help in getting SSL working will be enormously appreciated. Thanks.
