startssl.com SSL error

April 6, 2014 4.4k views
Hello, Thanks in advance (hopefully!) for reading this. Basically, I followed this guide: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-apache-with-a-free-signed-ssl-certificate-on-a-vps and my site gives (using Google Chrome error messages here) the error: "SSL connection error Unable to make a secure connection to the server. This may be a problem with the server, or it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don't have. Error code: ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR" I'm really stumped, and have re-read everything and triply checked things, to no avail. My domain is bay-a.co.uk (you'll see HTTP works). I've got ufw enabled, but 443 is open like 80. I've done all editing in the tutorial I pasted above, but it's just refusing to work! Any more detail that's needed can be provided - and thanks in advance. Lloyd

  • Hi, I modified the file:
    /etc/apache2/ports.conf.
    Instead of the
    /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default
    And it is working fine

Your site loads fine for me on SSL. Are you still experiencing this issue?
