I can’t get the certificate working or beiing detected here the config from httpd conf file:

 NameVirtualHost *:80
 
 <VirtualHost *:80>
 DocumentRoot /var/www/html/
 ServerName xyz-market.fr
 
 
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =xyz-market.fr
 RewriteRule ^ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [END,NE,R=permanent]
 </VirtualHost>
 
 <VirtualHost *:80>
 DocumentRoot /var/www/html/
 ServerName www.xyz-market.fr
 
 
 RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =www.xyz-market.fr
 RewriteRule ^ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [END,NE,R=permanent]
 </VirtualHost>
 
 Include /etc/httpd/conf/httpd-le-ssl.conf

Here the ssl conf:


 <IfModule mod_ssl.c>
 <VirtualHost *:443>
  DocumentRoot /var/www/html/
  ServerName xyz-market.fr
 
 
 SSLCertificateFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/xyz-market.fr/cert.pem
 SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/xyz-market.fr/privkey.pem
 Include /etc/letsencrypt/options-ssl-apache.conf
 SSLCertificateChainFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/xyz-market.fr/chain.pem
 </VirtualHost>
 </IfModule>
 <IfModule mod_ssl.c>
 <VirtualHost *:443>

 </IfModule>

If you put the code between three backticks (```), it would format perfectly with all the < and >.

Also, I’m not sure what the issue is here: If I go to www.xyz-market.fr, I’m seeing a green lock without any TLS error of any kind? So the LE certificate has been installed properly and is also being used.

Hi @ronylicha

why do you have two different port 80 vHosts, one with the non-www, one with the www?

Create one port 80 vHost with both domain names. Your certificate has already both domain names.

Then create one port 443 vHost - again with both domain names.

When i write two serverName in the same vhost, only the first is taken


Maybe you Can explain how to write it?

That’s because that’s not how Apache works. See the documentation: https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/core.html#servername

There you can also read how you could add more hostnames to the same VirtualHost section.

It’s expected that you read the documentation instead of doing trial and error.

Hi,

I already read this doc long time ago, it’s not my first try of web server…
I try to do separate vHost because i have other CT where its worked, my regular conf is like that:

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /var/www/html/
ServerName xyz-market.fr
ServerAlias www.xyz-market.f
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =xyz-market.fr [OR]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =www.xyz-market.fr
RewriteRule ^ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [END,NE,R=permanent]
</VirtualHost>

And not working, i ust reconfig the server removed and reissue the certificat, same problem.

Maybe i just dont understand something, i’m just a human and dont know everything, that what i’m asking here…

I spend the last 40hours on this problem rebuilding end testing on different CT to check with a lot of apache version, Certbot version, SSL version and else, i have the same problem every time.

So if you can help me find what the point i did’nt uderstant thx.

It seems you’ve got to possibly conflicting TLS configurations now:

  • /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf
  • /etc/httpd/conf/httpd-le-ssl.conf

It looks like /etc/httpd/conf/httpd-le-ssl.conf is working, because the www subdomain works nicely. Certbot used httpd.conf as a template for this httpd-le-ssl.conf file and for some reason didn’t notice there already was a TLS virtualhost in ssl.conf. (Perhaps because it’s located in the conf.d directory? I don’t know, I’m not using this Linux distribution…)

You should try to integrate those two files into one with both the hostnames in it.

Found the right way,

had to call httpd-le-ssl.conf before other conf and finally work

That’s wrong. You have to remove your duplicated definitions.

It’s more a workaround and leaves your Apache configuration in essence misconfigured.
