SSL configuration

    I have a question about SSL setup on my Linux VPS.

    I noticed that in the Apache configuration file (the default httpd.conf) there's only "Listen 80" directive, no "Listen 443". Also there's no mod_ssl loaded. However, I can do <VirtualHost *:443> and accessing them over https works (well, almost works - otherwise I wouldn't be bothering to ask ;)

    So, how does this happen? Is there a proxy somewhere?

    What do you see in the output of this command:

    grep Listen /path/to/apache/conf/httpd.conf

    # Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
    # Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to
    Listen 80

    So?.. Any hints?

    I suppose you've already tried putting the necessary directives back in there, so what specifically isn't working for you?

    I never had these directives in there. SSL is working. The problem is - I don't understand why it's working when Apache is not configured to use it.

    PS. Well, the specific problem I have is with copy/move commands in Subversion + mod_dav working over SSL. There's a known issue with this setup when there's an SSL proxy, but I don't know whether there is one. I mean, I sure did not install one myself.

    Well do you have any "Include" statements in there? OS X's default Apache config does a

    Include /private/etc/httpd/users/*.conf
    which gives every local user their own config file which can supplement and override the primary httpd.conf.
