[Icecast] Icecast chrooted and ssl

Hi Philipp, thanks for your reply.

What I mean by 'works but ssl' is that the servers runs on port 80 without ss land works, but the ssl page on port 443 takes ages to load and gives an error.
IE11 complains about an unsupported protocol or cipher, Firefox says the connection is not secure.
Server address is stream.freemusicradio.nl
I think I will try cleaning up and use the recommended installation procedure.

Thanks and regards, Paul

It's very much recommended to use this method:

As you did correctly, the cert must be present within the chroot.

That indicates that it's loaded.

How does 'works but ssl' show? What kind of error do you get?
Do you have a link to your server?
