RE: Which <IfModule mpm...> Option, if any, could I use in the File apache.conf?


I am right now using for their certs. for ssl (443). Okay, so I tried to mix and match their info. from their site w/ info.

Failure is obvious so far. Anyway, I am using the /etc/apache2/apache2.conf file to adjust things like in the apache2 guide from

<ifmodule mod_ssl.c=""> is what I want to use b/c of the history w/ this IfModule file. </ifmodule>

Now…for some reason, in the /etc/apache2/sites-available/ file, I have been unable to use it correctly.

This may sound silly but what can I do w/ these certs. and the platform for Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS?


P.S. Should I place the <ifmodule mod_ssl.c=""> header in /etc/apache2/sites-available/ file or in the /etc/apache2/apache2.conf file? Either way, I have not configured things correctly for my certs.</ifmodule>

I was way off base w/ my insinuations. There needs to be two files in /etc/apache2/sites-available/, i.e. and

One needs to have the VirtualHost *:80 and the other needs to have the VirtualHost *:443 if you want your certs to work correctly.


P.S. If this does not make sense, contact me. I will try to make more sense out of it.
