Apache httpd Web Server
I’ve been configuring Apache web server recently, it’s been a VPS installed from scratch that needed SSL certificate added.
My primary webserver of choice is nginx, and so Apache skills are getting rusty.
When I made the necessary changes in virtual hosts config file, I ran the syntax check and received an error:
After double-checking the syntax, I realised my mistake: the SSL module was missing.
In order to fix the error above, we need to install the mod_ssl:
Once this was completed, I re-run the syntax check for Apache configuration and could see it was now ready for service SSL traffic:
pS: WOW! I completely forgotten that there’s practically nothing written here on Unix Tutorial blog about either nginx or Apache web severs. Will address that in the nearest future!
