Pinned topic SSL configuration on Websphere Application Server 7

‏2013-02-11T08:48:45Z |
Hi IBM Support Team,

I have configured SSL on between IHS and WAS but i am not getting IHS admin screen while accessing the url
https://localhost
Please help me to configure this and testing my application on SSL successfully.

I have followed these steps
1. Create public key infrastructure(PKI) artifacts needed by IHS.
  • Create a key file for storing keys and certificates.
  • Create either a self signed certificate or a certificate signed by a certificate authority.
2. Configure a virtual host on IHS to use secure HTTP(HTTPS).
  • Create a virtual host with the usual HTTPS port no(443).
  • Specify other attributes(eg – document root) for the virtual host.
3. Enable SSL on IHS.
4. Test the connection using browser.

PFA my httpd.conf file.

Thanks
Shikha

    There is no "IHS admin screen". The WAS administrative console is able to manage IHS, though.

    If you are talking about the default web page you see with vanilla IHS installation then make sure that you have DocumentRoot for SSL virtual host pointed to same directory as the non-SSL config. I believe it should be something like <IHS install localtion>/htdocs/<your locale, e.g. en_US>
