We got a new VPS account and i installed SSL on it. SSL was installed on the same IP as the server..
We have an apache fronting the tomcat. PROBLEM is if i try ... http://www.mydomain.com it works
but if i try https://www.mydomain.com i get ....
Service Temporarily Unavailable
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.
Additionally, a 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Can some one let me know what the problem might be???
Note: thou my hosting company gave me another static IP for SSL i did not use it , becoz in that case i totally get SSL_error..etc.. so i used
my same server ip...
This may be a challenge. When you do an https request, the default port used in 443, instead of port 80, like standard HTTP uses. I think your problem is that you don't have a port 443 connection handler set up in Apache.
There are currently 2 different ways for Apache to pipeline requests to Tomcat: the older mod_jk way and the newer mod_proxy way. So if you could give us maybe the virtualhost definition from your Apache configuration it would help a lot. Please use the "Code" button to wrap formatting tags around your configuration data, though, so our message formatter won't make a mess of it!
The secret of how to be miserable is to constantly expect things are going to happen the way that they are "supposed" to happen.
You can have faith, which carries the understanding that you may be disappointed. Then there's being a willfully-blind idiot, which virtually guarantees it.
I use the mod JK....jk_conf and then workers properties file for the tomcat apache communication.
I see my virtual host and apache forward and the tomcat receiver(i mean port configs) all seem ok.
However here are the config files...
I am placing the main parts only here...........
