I recently installed an SSL certificate on my Amazon EC2 Ubuntu 12.04(32bit) server running Apache 2.
When I attempt to access my site via https, it does not load. When I perform a nmap scan, I see that port 443 is not open.
I tried to open port 443 in my IP tables to no avail. iptables -L yields
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination
ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:https
Here's how I installed SSL
I modified /etc/init.d/apache2.conf to include ssl.conf and modified ssl.conf to include the requisite paths of my certificate files, ie
SSLCertificateFile /path/file SSLCertificateKeyFile /path/file SSLCertificateChainFile /path/file
I configured my security group to allow inbound requests from port 443 (TCP source:0.0.0.0/0)
When I perform the following test with php
echo "not loaded";
echo "loaded" ;
I get "loaded".
