Dispatcher SSL configuration on Linux

Avatar

Level 2

Experts,
The SSL configuration instructions for dispatcher are not working and there must be something missing or incorrect.
Please help!
--------------------------------
Situation:
Dispatcher was configured and tested on port:80 - works fine. Now switching to SSL:

1) Downloaded dispatcher that supports SSL (dispatcher-apache2.4-linux-x86-64-ssl10-4.1.9.tar)

2) Replaced the dispatcher library and re-link the mod_dispatcher.so to point to the new dispatcher library

3) Linux OpenSSL is version 1.0 -> Relinked to older version to support dispatcher:

“ln -s libssl.so.10 libssl.so.0.9.8” and “ln -s libcrypto.so.10 libcrypto.so.0.9.8”

4) Generated self-signed certs <myserver>.crt and <myserver>.key

5) Updated httpd.conf:

Listen 443

<VirtualHost <myserver>:443>
  ServerName  <myserver>
  DocumentRoot /usr/share/httpd
  <Directory /usr/share/httpd>
    <IfModule disp_apache2.c>
      SetHandler dispatcher-handler
    </IfModule>
    AllowOverride None
  </Directory>
  SSLEngine on
  SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/ssl/<myserver>.crt
  SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/ssl/<myserver>.key
</VirtualHost>

6) Error on restarting apache:

"Invalid command 'SSLEngine', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration"
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It seems like we need to load apache ssl module in addition to dispatcher ssl module, right?
Is "LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so" required?
Does anyone run Dispatcher on SSL on Linux? Can you share your httpd.conf settings?
Thanks a lot!

Hi, are the tweaks that you mentioned not documented here?  http://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/dispatcher/disp-ssl.html

If not, if you tell me what you did I can see about adding the information to that page.

 

thanks,
scott

If docs are not working; please file a ticket. A support agent will help here.

Hi,

It's likely that you don't have the SSL module loaded. Please add this statement to your httpd.conf:

LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so

kind regards,
Jörg

  On Monday  I will reach out to internal Adobe people to see if anyone has encountered  this.

Well, I was hoping someone has Dispatcher-6.1 working on SSL on Linux. A httpd.conf sample would help!
PS: Dispatcher's README.txt is dated 2013! 🙂

Thanks! It seems like the "mod_ssl.so" is implicitly loaded by "mod_dispatcher.so" and no explicit directive is required.
Just make sure "mod_ssl.so" is in the modules directory. I got it working with a few tweaks.
It seems like the dispatcher documentation needs to be updated with more details about the SSL configuration.
Thanks, Alex

I am using

Linux - Ubunt 14 X64 , [Linux ubuntu 4.2.0-27-generic #32~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 22 15:32:26 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux]

Dispatcher version - dispatcher-apache2.4-linux-x86-64-ssl10-4.1.12/

Any pointer what could be causing this.
