SSL/Wordpress help


I'm new to SSL. I'm running Apache 2.2.22 on Ubuntu with WordPress. I got a cert installed and it works, e.g.: …">

My virt hosts config is:

VirtualHost configuration:
wildcard NameVirtualHosts and _default_ servers:
*:443         (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/default-ssl:2)
*:80                   is a NameVirtualHost
         default server localhost (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default:1)
         port 80 namevhost localhost (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default:1)
         port 80 namevhost (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/
         port 80 namevhost (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/

My problem is that while does answer, no https:// URLs deeper than that answer. Apache error log just says they're 404ing. The (standard) WP .htaccess is in the dir, doing its mod_rewrite thing but somehow the SSL server doesn't get that request passed to it. The root dir for the default-ssl virt server is correct.

Is there something in my setup that looks fishy here?

Thanks very much in advance for any help.
