Securing community edition with a SSL.

Currently i have 5.x version of community edition and i want to install a ssl to secure the site. I have followed many docs from this site on how to setup and apparently i must be missing a few things because i still cannot get my site to work.

Here i what I have done so far


I used the tool keytool to import my chain and my cert into tomcat.

I then edited server.xml to port to 443 instead of 80 (that i originally had changed)

I then edited share-config-custom to reflect my Url's etc: https://localhost/alfresco

i then edited to point my share and my context to port 443 and i changed the protocol to https.


When i restarted the alfresco site with the ./ restart command everything starts like it should but I cannot access the site.


I get a message that the  "SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length. Error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG"


Not sure what I'm doing wrong and could really use a little help.


Thanks in advanced
