blank pages when on https

I have a Ubuntu 12.04.3 server with Apache2 and Zpanel installed. For one of the domains on this server I ordered and SSL Certificate and installed it. Everything seems to work fine but when I visit the website in https I just get a blank page… without any source code. When I click the cert button next to the domain name it shows the certificate and verified by GeoTrust.

Because of ZPanel i figured out I had to alter the /etc/zpanel/configs/apache/http-vhosts.conf file and add the <VirtualHost *:443>-settings Because it didn’t work I also altered

  • /etc/apache2/ports.conf (added Virtualhost *:443)
  • /etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl (added the cert and key files)

Has anyone some suggestions to solve my blank page issue?

a typo slipped in while altering the /etc/zpanel/configs/apache/http-vhosts.conf file… It was hard to find because the nano editor didn’t show that part of the file because the text was too wide.

DigitalOcean seems to attract a lot of zPanel users. For the benefit of people that might encounter the same problem in the future… what was the solution?

solved it, myself… thanks anyway
