    SSL Problem


    I am using SSL on my site but am having trouble in getting it to work correctly. I want to make it mandatory that the sections in <webaddress>/members and <webaddress>/admin are protected by SSL. I currently have the following in the httpd.conf file:

    SSLEngine on
    SSLCertificateFile /usr/local/home/pm42/finalcert.pem
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /usr/local/home/pm42/privkey.pem
    SSLCertificateChainFile /usr/local/home/pm42/finalcert.pem

    but I dont know what to do next. Any help would be much appreciated.

    You will struggle to do this, the https: protocol works at a lower level in the protocol stack than http:, so sharing the web server between the two is troublesome. I managed to get around this on my server by using virtual hosts, so you can log onto my server using 'https://squirrelmail.<domain>' and get email, or you can log onto 'http://<virtualhost>.<domain>' and get the regular server.
