Two questions:

1. How do I check if I have ssl installed on my box
 If not, where can I download it from web ?

2. How do I configure it ?

Note: On my box>K>System>Apache Configuration
under Virtual hosts tab, if I add a new entry, under SSL, there is a checkbox for "Enable SSL Support"
I checked this, but it did not seem to make a differnce.

Should I be even checking this ?

Also note, I do have some files under /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt


Thanks!

1. check if there is a command: openssl (for example while using find)
2. Do you mean apache?
   then simply go into httpd.conf, search for SSL and set/uncomment the appropriate settings

your ssl.crt needs to be addeded to
  SSLCertificateFile

rajasree,

Right after you checked the "enable-SSL" button, try to restart apache, and try to browse to https://yourserver/, or https://yourvirtualhost/

I would suspect that there should not be a pop-up box saying that "SSL is ON" like on windows.
