Not directly a Moodle problem but I can't find anything specific in other Linux forums. I've spent the summer hols upgrading our school server and moodle to Debian Sarge 3.1 and Moodle 1.6. (in German) Everything went without problems and the server is working.
My problem is that, we require SSL login over the internet and after installing openssl etc.. any ".php" pages show as code with https:// and won't run. PHPinfo in Moodle admin shows openssl enabled.
In Debian the installations went as expected but interestingly /etc/ports.conf didn't require "Listen 443" to work. Apache2 complains if this line is entered and "netstat" shows that port 443 is already being listened to. The SSL certificate is also generated and accepted by the browser but after that php pages don't work. I have 2 virtual server files for :80 and :443 respectively which are basically copies but with the SSH stuff in the latter.
Any ideas anyone?

All versions are standard Debian except PHP which came from the unofficial repository in order to satisfy Moodle 1.6.
