https for admin area

I seem to have set up my https vhost correctly as Magento uses it during installation. But after successfully installing Magento I can’t access the admin area using https. My browser Safari tells me that the URL is not reachable, the logfile of my Apache tells me the following: - - [06/Dec/2007:14:08:10 +0000] "GET /admin HTTP/1.1" 302 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; de-de) AppleWebKit/523.10.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0.4 Safari/523.10" - - [06/Dec/2007:14:08:11 +0000] "GET /admin HTTP/1.1" 302 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; de-de) AppleWebKit/523.10.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0.4 Safari/523.10" - - [06/Dec/2007:14:08:11 +0000] "GET /admin HTTP/1.1" 302 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; de-de) AppleWebKit/523.10.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0.4 Safari/523.10" - - [06/Dec/2007:14:08:12 +0000] "GET /admin HTTP/1.1" 302 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; de-de) AppleWebKit/523.10.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0.4 Safari/523.10" - - [06/Dec/2007:14:08:12 +0000] "GET /admin HTTP/1.1" 302 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; de-de) AppleWebKit/523.10.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0.4 Safari/523.10" - - [06/Dec/2007:14:08:13 +0000] "GET /admin HTTP/1.1" 302 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; de-de) AppleWebKit/523.10.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0.4 Safari/523.10" - - [06/Dec/2007:14:08:14 +0000] "GET /admin HTTP/1.1" 302 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; de-de) AppleWebKit/523.10.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0.4 Safari/523.10" - - [06/Dec/2007:14:08:14 +0000] "GET /admin HTTP/1.1" 302 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; de-de) AppleWebKit/523.10.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0.4 Safari/523.10" - - [06/Dec/2007:14:08:15 +0000] "GET /admin HTTP/1.1" 302 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; de-de) AppleWebKit/523.10.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0.4 Safari/523.10" - - [06/Dec/2007:14:08:15 +0000] "GET /admin HTTP/1.1" 302 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; de-de) AppleWebKit/523.10.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0.4 Safari/523.10" - - [06/Dec/2007:14:08:16 +0000] "GET /admin HTTP/1.1" 302 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; de-de) AppleWebKit/523.10.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0.4 Safari/523.10" - - [06/Dec/2007:14:08:16 +0000] "GET /admin HTTP/1.1" 302 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; de-de) AppleWebKit/523.10.3 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0.4 Safari/523.10"

And then stops trying. Any ideas where I could have made a mistake in my https configuration? My SSL certificate is signed by and I administer my server on my own, so I am able to change every setting if necessary.

I think I’m having the same issue. Installation went fine but can’t access anything via https (admin/customer login). I’m using a shared ssl on a development server (for testing only) w/ apache 2.2.6. I continue to receive an http 302 error (temporary redirect). Has anyone else experienced this? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am getting the same error over and over again. I haven’t been able to even view the first page of the installation routine.

This is basically what a HTTP request and response of magento looks like:

GET /magento/index.php/install/ HTTP/1.1

As you can see in the quote I am using PHP 5.2.3 and Apache 2.2.4.

Are there any problems with these versions or do you know of Apache or PHP related settings that could cause this this kind of problem?

I couldn’t find any helpful information in the wiki or bug tracker yet.
