Browse - Computer Tips - Why is Firefox giving "hostname has sent an incorrect or unexpected message. Error code -12263".
Date: 2008jan30 Q. Why is Firefox giving "<hostname> has sent an incorrect or unexpected message. Error code -12263". I setup SSL with Apache. It looks OK but when I browse to my site with Firefox I get that error. What's up? A. Your browser is talking SSL but your site isn't. As proof try going to port 443 (the SSL port) using a regular (unencrypted) connection:http://www.example.com:443 (Replace www.example.com with the actual name of your host, of course)You'll probably see your site fine. The problem is this line in your /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf file:<VirtualHost _default_:443>Its not acting as you would expect. Instead its doing nothing. So everything inside the <VirtualHost> is ignored! Change it to the actual name of your host.<VirtualHost www.example.com:443>And it'll work.
