Hi, I’m trying to install ssl on my ubuntu 14.04 apache2 droplet using this tutorial:

I have downloaded all files from godaddy and uploaded them in etc/ssl and my
apache2/sites-available is exactly like tutorial:

<VirtualHost *:80>
Redirect permanent /

<VirtualHost *:443>
ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
DocumentRoot /var/www/html
SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile /etc/ssl/
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/ssl/
SSLCACertificateFile /etc/ssl/intermediate.crt   

ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined 

But when I go to to my website i get “This webpage has a redirect loop” message on chrome!

Hey, I don’t know much about ssl,
But I want to say You can not get any solution until 7days from here.
I’m also harass nobody here to help except confusing you.

  • @zafarmd if you got something not working, and aren’t giving a proper explenation thats not the fault of the community. The community is here to help you out as much as possible, you shouldn’t get angry about that.

    I am not sure if it will work for your setup, each apache environment could use a different configuration. But try this for the rewriting:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}
  • even when I remove the VH *80 my https does not work and it redirects me to the normal http page. I don’t see that green lock. How can I know what is the problem I looked at apache error log and nothing is there
