So I have a debian wheezy installation where I someone started to install SSL but gave up and so I'm here to finish the task.
problem - when accessing with http (port 80) - all is working. When accessing https (443) - ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED.
So I started debugging from the start - - Is router forwarding 443 to the internal ip of the server - Check. - Is port opened - Check. - Is port listening - Check. - Apache is starting correctly - Check
So it seems to me the problem is in Apache settings - I go to the default-ssl in the /etc/apache2/sites-enabled and check - it is the same template as always (default crt/key files which are available, checked)
<IfModule mod_ssl.c> <VirtualHost *:443> ServerAdmin email@example.com ServerName www.mysite.com:443 DocumentRoot /var/www/mysite/ <Directory /> Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None </Directory> . . .
So here I'm a bit lost - I always just added a virtual site and all was working for me. I'm not sure if the person who started before me did something weird but there has to be a logic which will allow to find the problem...
