Apache responds in https, but only by test page, not my website

Hi,

In order to switch from http to https, I have already obtained my SSL
certificates. But my problem is to run the Apache webserver (Server
version: Apache/2.4.23 (Fedora) with https (no problems with http). I mean.
For the http I'm using succesfully:

<VirtualHost *:*80*>
ServerAdmin <a href="mailto: ... at mydomain dot com"> ... at mydomain dot com</a>
DocumentRoot /home/web/mydomain.com
ServerName mydomain.com
</VirtualHost>

But when I define also:

<VirtualHost *:*443*>
ServerAdmin <a href="mailto: ... at mydomain dot com"> ... at mydomain dot com</a>
DocumentRoot /home/web/mydomain.com
ServerName mydomain.com
</VirtualHost>

the server responds in https, typing in the browser *https*://
<a href="http://www.mydomain.com" title="www.mydomain.com">www.mydomain.com</a> (obviously giving me a certificate warning because I have
the certificate but I have not yet configured the server with it) but
return to me only the Apache test page and not the site. If I try other
site pages I obtain "Not Found".
Browsing *http*://www.mydomain.com, instead, everything is ok, as usually.

Where do I wrong?

Thank you very much,
Fabio.

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.

Hi Eric, thank you.

I'm not expert, I did not understand what to do... Regarding logs, I
defined:

<VirtualHost *:443>
ServerAdmin <a href="mailto:fabio. ... at centrometeo dot com">fabio. ... at centrometeo dot com</a>
DocumentRoot /home/web/centrometeo.com
ServerName centrometeo.com
ErrorLog logs/https-centrometeo.com-error_log
CustomLog logs/https-centrometeo.com-access_log 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.

Fabio.

That means you have another virtualhost handling your port 443 traffic.

apachectl -S will summarize where your vhosts are defined if you can't
find them with grep or an editor.

I try to run:

[root@servercm httpd]# apachectl -S

but it does not return anything...
