Learning every day
Authored by: TheSpoonman on Dec 01, '04 03:14:05PM

Um, offhand, the biggest problems were the creation of a cert authority and/or self-signing the cert. Also, the removal of the password from the cert. The howtos made this look a ton more complex than you did. I didn't feel like bothering with that much work for a minor pet project.

I'm going to use this tonight to see if I can get it working on my Linux box. I still use Apache, but primarily as a reverse-proxy to my internal network. I'm using SSL_Proxy to encrypt packets, but would prefer to just use Apache and be done with it. SSL_Proxy was setup in 5 minutes (including download and compile time), this makes it look like Apache should be as quick!

Answering the age-old question: which is more painful, going to work or gouging your eye out with a spoon?
