    Enabling SSLEngine on Client Mac OS Leopard

    Hi,

    I am trying to enable SSL on my Mac running OS Leopard client (not server). I followed the direction on http://www.afp548.com/articles/web/sslcert.html as suggested by another thread but I fall short on where to place the files and how to enable the SSLEngine manual. I have gone in and made sure that the mod_ssl is not commented out in my httpd.conf file and that the include to the extra httpd-ssl.conf file is not commented out.

    My httpd-ssl.conf looks like this:

    Code:
    Listen 443
    
    <VirtualHost *:443>
    #My doc root has been changed to my user sites folder.
    DocumentRoot "/Users/MyName/Sites"
    ServerName localhost:443
    ServerAdmin my@email.com
    ErrorLog "/private/var/log/apache2/error_log"
    TransferLog "/private/var/log/apache2/access_log"
    
    SSLEngine on
    
    SSLCipherSuite ALL:!ADH:!EXPORT56:RC4+RSA:+HIGH:+MEDIUM:+LOW:+SSLv2:+EXP:+eNULL
    
    SSLCertificateFile "/private/etc/ca/server.crt"
    SSLCertificateKeyFile "/private/etc/ca/server.key"
    SSLCACertificatePate "/private/etc/ca/"
    
    <FilesMatch "\.(cgi|shtml|phtml|php)$">
    SSLOptions +StdEnvVars
    </FilesMatch>
    <Directory "/Library/WebServer/CGI-Executables">
    SSLOptions +StdEnvVars
    </Directory>
    
    BrowserMatch ".*MSIE.*" \
    nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown \
    downgrade-1.0 force-response-1.0
    
    CustomLog "/private/var/log/apache2/ssl_request_log" \
    "%t %h %{SSL_PROTOCOL}x %{SSL_CIPHER}x \"%r\" %b"
    
    </VirtualHost>
    MY ssl files created from the site listed above are located in the /private/etc/ca folder.

    Every time I turn the SSLEngine to on in the config file I get the error 'Safari can't open the page "http://localhost/" because Safari can't connect to the server "localhost". I get the same if I try "https://". If turn the SSLEngine off then everything works fine. In my error logs I get these messages.

    Code:
    [Time Date][error] Init:Unable to read pas phrase [Hint: key introduced or changed before restart?]
    [Time Date][error] SSL Library Error: 218710120 error: 0D094068:asn1 encoding routines:d2i_ASN1_SET:bad tag
    [Time Date][error] SSL Library Error: 218529960 error: 0D0680A8:asn1 encoding routines:ASN1_CHECK_TLEN:wrong tag
    [Time Date][error] SSL Library Error: 218595386 error: 0D07803A:asn1 encoding routines:ASN1_ITEM_EX_D2I:nested asn1 error
    [Time Date][error] SSL Library Error: 218734605 error: 0D09A00D:asn1 encoding routines:d2i_PrivateKey:ASN1 lib
    Can some please tell me what I am doing wrong here? Any help is appreciated thanks.

    Ignoring the errors and focusing on the 'can't connect' for a moment;

    You are not blocking port 443 in a firewall of some kind, are you?

    No I wasn't blocking anything... To be honest I do not know what I did different to solve the issue but I got it working.

Does Mac OS X Pages work like Microsoft Publisher where you create newspaper like articles, well the type of documents you can create with Microsoft Publisher? Also can you open Publisher files with Pages and edit and create the Publisher files like you can with Microsoft Word document and Pages?
    I don't know. If you are creating a News Article I would suggest Adobe Indesign.

    Hold down 'C' on boot.
