[users@httpd] More ssh setup question


Ok ... some of the guidance I see/hear refers to the setting up a .ssh/authorized_keys directory for each user that logs in ...   However, if I understand correctly (?) this would be the case for individuals... logging onto some other remote server?

For the set up of a https-enabled website, then, you are saying I don't need to set up an .ssh/authorized_keys file?

In other words, for Apache, I would  only need to use something like this in my httpd-vhosts.conf file

NameVirtualHost *:443

<VirtualHost *:443>
ServerName www.yoursite.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/site
SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile /path/to/www_yoursite_com.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /path/to/www_yoursite_com.key
SSLCertificateChainFile /path/to/DigiCertCA.crt
Also, it seem some administrators include / configure the httpd-ssl.conf file, and others do not... they just use the httpd-vhosts.conf file (?) ... do we need to use httpd-ssl.conf ?

For instance, one Youtube ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TH6evGKgy20 ) says use Mod SSL:

Any guidance would help...

Hey all,

.ssh/authorized_keys? If so, where does doe the directory need to be placed
- underneath DocumentRoot?
Your ssh setup shouldn't have anything to do with your webserver.
