You may probably tried to simply change the url in the browser with
https instead of
http at the beginning, however the only thing you’ll find if you try to access in the browser will be Object not found!.
The problem talks by itself and we need to solve it , our virtual host doesn’t provide SSL support for our project, therefore we are unable to use a secure connection.
Enable SSL for a localhost URL
By default, the localhost domain allow you to access any file inside the
xampp/htdocs folder. For example, if you have an HTML file namely
file.html located in
C:/xampp/htdocs/file.html, then you can access it in the browser at
http://localhost/file.html with the HTTP protocol easily. In the same way you can access the document with the HTTPS protocol at
If you access your files or projects using a virtual host, then you can follow the next step.
Enable SSL for a vhost on a single project
We suppose that you already mounted a normal virtual host in the *80 port and it may look similar to :
A normal vhost that points to the port 80 in a simple symfony 3 project, nothing special and it doesn’t support https by itself.
To enable the SSL connection, you need to add the following lines inside another
VirtualHost tag , basically with the same structure as you main VirtualHost tag but with the following information :
The port now needs to be 443 instead of the 80.
SSLEngine on SSLCertificateFile "conf/ssl.crt/server.crt" SSLCertificateKeyFile "conf/ssl.key/server.key"
The previous lines will enable the SSL in your project. Note that the paths are relative, with a normal installed xampp distribution it should work, if it doesn’t work try changing it to the absolute path. They’re normally located inside the
Remember that the important point to enable the SSL are the properties
SSLCertificateKeyFile and the correct port (443).
Now add both VirtualHost in your
httpd-vhosts.conf file :
httpd-vhosts.conf file and restart the apache service and try to connect using the https protocol.
