SSL not working on Apache Ubuntu 12.04


I followed various guide and installed my SSL Certs. I have upload three files to my ~/ssl/* directory:

1.) mydomain.crt (SSLCertificateFile) 2.) mydomain.key (SSLCertificateKeyFile) 3.) (SSLCertificateChainFile)

I have edited my server config file and included <VirtualHost *:443> beneath <VirtualHost *:80> (all config in one file). Now when I open the site without “https”, it works fine, but when I open with “https”, the browser (after long wait) says “Unable To Connect”. I think I’m (being a noob) not able to understand a small clue or a glitch or an error. I suspect I’m doing something wrong with the third file (SSLCertificateChainFile).

Can you please help?

PS: My UFW is set to allow traffic on port 443.

[Update] My DNS (cloudflare) was blocking SSL connections. Figured out lately. Setting were correct as explained in DO’s tutorial.

Thanks for your support!
