Question SSL error

  • Posted April 6, 2014


Thanks in advance (hopefully!) for reading this.

Basically, I followed this guide:

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 (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.



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