I have a VPS with centOs 7 on it, that has a bit of an issue.
Whenever i try to access my VPS from a browser using httpS://, it gives me the following error:
Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to 22.214.171.124:8000. SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length. (Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long) The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.
the content of /etc/httpd/logs/ssl_error_log is as follows:
[Fri Nov 21 10:42:47.411502 2014] [ssl:warn] [pid 284] AH01909: RSA certificate configured for 126.96.36.199:443 does NOT include an ID which matches the server name
From what i could gather, this means my SSL keys got invalidated because the server name is wrong however it did work before.
The only things i did between this error and the last time it did work are:
- installing adjenti (that does work on http)
- changing the DNS to openDNS (as the last one didnt work anymore)
- rebooting the system.
My best guess is that changing the DNS address caused this, but i don't know enough about SSL to know what do now.
