    Hi , I have setup a server 1 website and need ssl support for the site. Have mod_ssl installed and ssl mod enabled but when I create a virtual host for for my website I am unable to start apache.

    Please use
    Code:
    <VirtualHost 192.168.1.5[B][COLOR="Red"]:80[/COLOR][/B]>
    instead of
    Code:
    <VirtualHost 192.168.1.5>

    What's the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /etc/apache2/ssl.crt/
    ?

    I think I have this problem solved. I used a different system certificate and was able to start apache2 with a certificate error on browser access. I'll need to troubleshoot the certificate problem. By purchasing or creating a self signed. Thanks falko
