    configuring the httpd.conf

    Ok, I really need some help here. i've seen some other issues on this baord about SSL certificates, but none seem to pertain to my issue. I'm a newbie...please be gentile.

    I wanted to install an SSL certificate on my server, so I purchased one from Thawte.com and followed the instructions. Right now when I look in the Private key and Certificates section on my cPanel, I see both are installed. I even see both on my server in an ssl folder.

    Now, assuming that is correct, the next step in all the documentation I've read has been to change the httpd.conf file. Well, that's a problem....I cannot find the httpd.conf file anywhere on my server. I contacted my webhost and he said it should have been done automatically when i installed the certificate...is that true? Nothing I've read suggests this. Everything says to manually edit the httpd.conf by adding a couple lines of text. But if I cannot access that file, how do I do it?

    At this point, I really do not know what to do. How do I know my server is set to accept SSL certificates?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    This is an issue you will need to take up with your webhost as you will not have access to the relevant files for any fixes if necessary. That is assuming you are do not have root access to the server and are a reseller or a cpanel user?

    I assume you have tried going to whatever SSL url you have set to see if it is secure in the browser?

    Well, I found out that it is a shared server so I obtained the correct address for my secure site. Problem solved...for now...
