I configured apache2.2.14 + JBoss2.4.8 + OpenSSL0.9.8k, if using http://localhost/ to access the apache server, it will forward to index.jsp which in JBoss.
However, when I type https://localhost:443 (HTTPS), it shows "The page cannot be found".
I disabled the mod_jk.so and just using index.html with some html tags in apache server,
then I type https://localhost:443 (HTTPS), it works!
I don't know what is going wrong...
Could anyone tell me how can I narrow down the problem ?
Generally the best places to check are the Apache access and error log files. If the connector doesn't pick up the URL and route to Tomcat, Apache will attempt to resolve the URL, and when it fails it will log that fact.
Incidentally, at least in some systems, the SSL and non-SSL access and error logs are separate. Look at all 4 for best results.
