Hi!
I work on windows 2000 OS, and I run the Apache web server.
I want to install SSL on it, but I know nothing (starting from scratch).
Can you tell me where to start?
Thanks!

Rzvika2,

Win32 version of Apache doesn't come with SSL modules.

Please take a look at the following FAQ.  It is quite comprehensive and should gets you moving.

Hi!
Sorry for responding so late...
I have succeeded only in win2000, but win98 is not ok.
I've used the file: Apache_1.3.6-mod_ssl_2.2.6-openssl_0.9.2b-WIN32-i386.zip
Do you know what file is good for win98?

Another question:
Do you know how I can configure ssl for tomcat?

Thanks!

Rzvika2,

The win32 version of Apache should be compatible with Win98,NT, and Win2k (and I bet it will run on WinXP as well).

SSL for Tomcat?  I would have to admit that I have very little knowledge with Tomcat (with or without SSL).

You may want to look at Tomcat docs for that matter.
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-4.0-doc/ssl-howto.html

The doc is pretty much straightforward.  Give it a shot.

cheers.
