Subject: Re: [[email protected]] Apache responds in https, but
only by test page, not my website

Hi Eric, thank you.
I'm not expert, I did not understand what to do... Regarding logs, I defined:
<VirtualHost *:443>    ServerAdmin [email protected]    DocumentRoot /home/web/    ServerName    ErrorLog logs/    CustomLog logs/ common</VirtualHost>
So, using differents name/files, but after a few attempts to access via https, empty files were created, so there is nothing in the logs.

I'd start by checking for other vhosts on either port (apachectl -S)
then drilling down to individual URL's that return bad results / where
the proper content comes from / finding the configuration for it.

Using custom log files in your vhosts is one way to avoid some of the confusion.
