Apache SSL & Traefik


I would like to know if there is a reason to enable mod_ssl and enable default-ssl.conf site anymore if we are behind Traefik ?

I use letsencrypt to generate a certificat and my site work great in HTTPS.

I try with and without the apache ssl mod, and it seems the same.

Could someone help me to understand why could i need the ssl module anymore ?

Thanks a lot

It depends if you trust your internal network.

Normally you would use Traefik to terminate TLS/SSL and just forward plain HTTP to the target (Apache). If you don't trust your network (someone might be listening to the internal traffic), then you can forward requests with HTTPS (encrypted), then your target also needs to handle TLS/SSL.
