Wrench Installation of Certificates failing

Hi All,

I have a few certificates that I need to install on my Apache server.

The files are in /opt/keys/:

[root@optimus keys]# ls -ltrh
total 36K
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1.8K Apr 20 18:29 EntrustG2bridge.cer
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1.7K Apr 20 18:29 wildcard.key
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1.5K Apr 20 18:29 wildcard.crt
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1.6K Apr 20 18:29 EntrustRootG2.cer
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 3.3K Apr 20 19:18 EntrustL1KSubca.cer

My /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf config is :

<VirtualHost *:80>
#    ServerAdmin
#    DocumentRoot /var/www/html/
#    ServerName
#    ErrorLog logs/
#    CustomLog logs/ common

     SSLEngine on
     SSLCertificateChainFile /opt/keys/EntrustL1KSubca.cer
     SSLCertificateChainFile /opt/keys/EntrustG2bridge.cer
     SSLCertificateChainFile /opt/keys/EntrustRootG2.cer

     SSLCertificateFile /opt/keys/wildcard.crt

     SSLCertificateKeyFile /opt/keys/wildcard.key


I am able to succesffuly start httpd service with this config but in my browser, when I click on the certificates, i do not see anything related to the certificates I am installing.

Can anyone tell me what I am going wrong here ?

That's probably because you configured the SSL-stuff in a VirtualHost listening on port 80. Replace 80 with 443 and see, if this makes a difference.
