del # to line 184 (Load Module ssl-module)
and # to line 171 (LoadModule rewrite_module)
AND # TO line 191 (LoadModule vhost_alias_module)
and insert vhosts :
<VirtualHost *:443>
DocumentRoot "C:/Apache24/htdocs/localhost/"
ServerName localhost
Redirect / https://localhost/
ServerAlias localhost/
SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile "C:/Apache24/conf/htv.crt"

<VirtualHost *:443>

localhost uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed.
The certificate is not valid for the name localhost.


Peer’s Certificate issuer is not recognized.
HTTP Strict Transport Security: false
HTTP Public Key Pinning: false
Certificate chain:



Do you mean want to create a self-signed ssl (not trusted by public CA) for your local website?

If so, you can follow this link (as that’s what i used for ssl self-sign):

However, if you are trying to obtain a trusted ssl for localhost, it’s not possible since ssl can only be issued under trusted public domains (no localhost, xxx.local etc)

Thank you
