I generated an ssl cert and enabled ssl within apache.
Which apache config do you need exactly (there are two /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf and /etc/apache2/apache2.conf) sorry for the questions but I’m pretty new to OC
there is no owncloud apache config, I was already wondering about that. (but it worked without ssl enabled before!) I only edited the two files mentioned above.
here the only changes I made to /etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl.conf
I just double checked my apache ssl configuration for a local self signed cert, and I don’t have a ServerName defined at all, perhaps you want to try taking it out completely.
The section you posted from your /etc/apache2/apache2.conf looks standard to me, what did you change there?
Thanks for your reply, I removed the servername entry without any change. I also changed the DocumentRoot within the same file back to /var/www, received an error and changed it back to /var/www/html/owncloud now it works all of a sudden…
very strange but thank you for your help this is solved now!
