Not much of a noob, but I will try.
I just configured httpd and installed mod_ssl and got my certificate from GoDaddy and put them on the server with ssl.conf pointing at them. I am getting this error:
SSLCertificateFile: file ‘/etc/pki/tls/certs/enmu.edu.crt’ does not exist or is empty
It’s a cute error. I have checked several times for misspellings, looked at the enmu.edu.crt file (looks like a cert to me) and I can certify that it is not empty and it most certainly exists. Want some proof? Here…
[root@itsnv607 ~]# ls -l /etc/pki/tls/certs total 1224

-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 1708 Jul 9 11:52 www.enmu.edu.key
Just for fun, I started playing with permissions, just in case that mattered (it didn’t). You can see that enmu.edu.crt is there, where it is supposed to be, and is not empty.
What would cause this error besides what it actually says?
