Apache2 SSL Problems
Hello Ubuntu Clan,

I have been pulling my hair out, trying to setup ssl on my Ubuntu server. I finally got everything working (Or so I thought), no error messages from apache or anything but when I visit my server I get this error in Firefox:

Data Transfer Interrupted

The connection to addison was interrupted while the page was loading.

The browser connected successfully, but the connection was interrupted while transferring information. Please try again.

* Are you unable to browse other sites? Check the computer's network connection.
* Still having trouble? Consult your network administrator or Internet provider for assistance.

Here are the most recent lines in my access.log: - - [04/May/2009:20:33:19 -0400] "\x16\x03\x01" 200 11645 "-" "-" - - [04/May/2009:20:36:09 -0400] "GET /" 200 81 "-" "-" - - [04/May/2009:20:41:05 -0400] "GET /" 200 81 "-" "-" - - [04/May/2009:22:55:13 -0400] "GET /" 400 594 "-" "-" - - [04/May/2009:23:03:04 -0400] "GET /" 400 594 "-" "-"

At first I was getting the x16, I fixed my cert and I am using the self-signing .pem cert. Here is my default-ssl file:

NameVirtualHost *:443
<virtualhost *:443>
ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
SSLEngine On
SSLCertificateFile /etc/ssl/private/localhost.pem

DocumentRoot /var/www/

Any help would be appreciated. I did not realize setting up SSL would be so difficult.
