However it seems that there is something blocking me from using port 80, because if I hit http://splunkweb.com I get a message that says "the server unexpectedly dropped the connection". If I configure httpd to use any other port, like 800 for example, the redirect works fine (http://splunkweb.com:800 -> https://splunkweb.com), it just doesn't like port 80.
I have verified in netstat that nothing else is using port 80 but httpd, so I don't think there is a port conflict. I also don't have iptables running. Before I setup https in splunk web it was using port 80 just fine, so I don't think there was any firewall rules blocking it.
Any ideas as to why this isn't working? I am wondering if there is a cherrypy configuration somewhere that needs to be changed?
