  • Thank you so much!!! I can finally go to bed now :D

    BTW I would also recommend these lines in the default-ssl or default-ssl.conf (depending on what is in your folder when logged into your server
    /etc/apache2/sites-available/

    under: <Virtual host default:443>

    SSLProtocol all -SSLv2 -SSLv3
    SSLCipherSuite HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5

    </VirtualHost>
