Hello,

I can access my site over http (port 80) but if I try https (port 443) I get a connection refused error. Why is this?

I'm using:
Ubuntu server 12.04 LTS
Apache 2 with mod ssl. The default-ssl shows up in sites-available and in sites-enabled

IPTables shows:
-A INPUT -p tcp --dport 443 -j ACCEPT

I installed the SSL cert and its intermediate cert according to the website's instructions. I've done this before and had no problems.

Here is some of the info from sites-available/default-ssl
