I got the following error during Godaddy ssl setup on one of my client server. I refers Godaddy’s ssl documentation for creating CSR and installing SSL. I can easily able to generate and complete the SSL certificates to be issued. But it seems than Godaddy ssl installation steps missed a step which shooting me an error like this “SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length”
After googling caused me to check various factors and I got confusing .. Changed the name based virtualhost to ip based virtualhost () and re-configuring Apache to listen (
Listen 188.8.131.52:443) on new purchased ip in order to tunnel the ssl traffic to new ip. Everything is seems to ok but I’m getting same error even I have re-key the ssl certificate.
Finally I found that neither of SSL engine (SSLEngine on) wasn’t declared any where in virtual host which causing to throw such errors.
