Have you read this? http://www.modssl.org/docs/2.8/ Specifically, http://www.modssl.org/docs/2.8/ssl_howto.html#ToC10 > So I *think* what I need to do is to have two separate invocations of > apache running all the time: one listening for http on port 80 and the > other listening for https on port, umm... 443 I think it was. If you want to do this, don't use mod_ssl. Just install apache and apache-ssl; the two packages do precisely this: run a non-ssl webserver and an ssl-only webserver that coexist independently. good times, Vineet -- http://www.doorstop.net/ -- One nation, indivisible, with equality, liberty, and justice for all.
