I've newly installed my private web server with Ubuntu 14.04 and I installed already Apache 2.4.7.
When I open via Firefox http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (my IP adress) I see the "Apache2 Ubuntu Default Page" which indicates that Apache works. So far so good.
I want to use SSL so I want configure Apache for that.
I followed the documentation (chapter "HTTPS Configuration"). https://help.ubuntu.com/14.04/serverguide/httpd.html#https-configuration
There are 3 commands I have to run in Terminal and I did so. If I understand the documentation right this should work without creating own certificate.
So to test I open again Firefox https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx to check if it works. But the page seems to hang and it doesn't seem to work.
- What is wrong?
- Do I have to create a certificate before I can use the default-ssl site?
Thank you in advance!
