SSLCert Install but FF returns ssl_error_rx_record_too_long

I'm having trouble with apache after installing SSL cert #2 on my CentOS 5.5 server.

Here are my server specs: CentOS 5.5 Virtualmin GPL (all modules up to date) OpenSSL Apache2.2

Here are my steps so far: I got a third IP from linode. Configured it on eth0:1 moved private IP to eth0:2 Purchased 5domain UCC cert from GoDaddy. Configured it as I've done many times before. Godaddy confirms that it's installed correctly according to their testing tool. Configured VirtualHost as follows:

NameVirtualHost XX.XX.XX.56:443 <VirtualHost XX.XX.XX.56:443> SuexecUserGroup #501 #502 ServerName ifmasa.org ServerAlias www.ifmasa.org ServerAlias webmail.ifmasa.org ServerAlias admin.ifmasa.org DocumentRoot /home/williamswebsites.com/public_html ErrorLog /var/log/virtualmin/ifmasa.org_error_log CustomLog /var/log/virtualmin/ifmasa.org_access_log "combined" ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/williamswebsites.com/domains/ifmasa.org/cgi-bin/ DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php index.php4 index.php5 <Directory "/home/williamswebsites.com/public_html"> Options -Indexes +IncludesNOEXEC +FollowSymLinks allow from all AllowOverride All </Directory> RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} =webmail.ifmasa.org RewriteRule ^(.*) https://ifmasa.org:20000/ [R] RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} =admin.ifmasa.org RewriteRule ^(.*) https://ifmasa.org:10000/ [R] SSLEngine on SSLCertificateFile /home/williamswebsites.com/domains/ifmasa.org/ssl.cert SSLCertificateKeyFile /home/williamswebsites.com/domains/ifmasa.org/ssl.key SSLCertificateChainFile /home/williamswebsites.com/domains/ifmasa.org/gd_bundle.crt SSLCACertificateFile /home/williamswebsites.com/domains/ifmasa.org/ssl.ca </VirtualHost>

Now if I go to https://www.ifmasa.org I get the following:

Secure Connection Failed   An error occurred during a connection to www.ifmasa.org.   SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.   (Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)

However if I go to http://www.ifmasa.org:443 apache shows me the index. This leads me to believe that something is wrong with apache not the cert.

Any ideas? or questions for more info?

Thanks!

Hi, seven years later .... I've got the same issue. How do you fixed it?

Now if I go to https://www.DOMAIN.com I get the following: Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to www.DOMAIN.com. SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length. (Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)

However if I go to http://www.DOMIN.com:443 apache shows me the index.

Hi,

It looks like you may have an error in your SSL certificate installation.

If you'd like, I can take a look, and verify everything is installed correctly, and that it validates properly.
