Step 4: Configure the SSL site
A SSL enabled site is seperate from the non ssl version. Even though they may have the same codebase they are seperate entities as far a as Apache is concerned. For this reason you will have to create a new vhost for the SSL site, where you replace the port 80 with 443.
The SSL site will have all the same settings as the non-ssl site with the following additions
#non ssl version of site
#ssl version of site
Step 5: Test
At this stage your ssl cert should be installed correctly. To test restart apache then enter the address https://your_site_url into a web browser (note the s at the end of http). You should see your site as normal but with SSL enabled.
