Spencer Tomosvary answers:

The SSL was incorrectly generated for instead of for I would start with that issue. You'll need to purchase a new cert for, but you can generate and install a self signed certificate in the meanwhile to solve the other issues that may be going on.


Daniel Yoen answers:

its your server problem :

try to change <VirtualHost> to <VirtualHost _default_:443>

or If using Apache2 check that you are using port 443 for SSL :

Listen 80
Listen 443 https

hope this help

Daniel Yoen comments:

or try to set SSLEngine On in the configuration.

<VirtualHost _default_:443>
SSLEngine on

Arnav Joy answers:

please see this link

or try following

To fix this you must not use a wildcard domain for your vhost and make sure it’s your actual server ip.

<VirtualHost _default_:443>
If this doesn’t fix your problem check the following:

Did you set, usually done per vhost: SSLEngine on
Cert/Key correctly generated


Rashad Aliyev answers:

This usually means the implementation of SSL on your server is not correct. The error is usually caused by a server side problem which the server administrator will need to investigate.

<VirtualHost _default_:443>
SSLEngine on

change the <VirtualHost> from _default_ to your fqdn).
