Apache-SSL is a secure Webserver, based on Apache and SSLeay/OpenSSL.
 Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)  is a protocol that transmits your communications over the Internet in an encrypted form. SSL ensures that the information is sent, unchanged, only to the server you intended to send it to.

The correct way of building an SSL encrypted Apache would be:

1) Build and install OpenSSL

2) Configure mod_ssl

3) Configure and build Apache

Download (these are for Solaris 8 on SPARC)(similerly u can get for solaris 2.7)

apache-1.3.27-sol8-sparc-local.gz
openssl-0.9.6g-sol8-sparc-local.gz

Run

gunzip apache-1.3.27-sol8-sparc-local.gz
gunzip openssl-0.9.6g-sol8-sparc-local.gz

and then, as root, run

pkgadd -d apache-1.3.27-sol8-sparc-local
pkgadd -d openssl-0.9.6g-sol8-sparc-local

after this please read the README files for installing openssl and apache.
it should be pretty easy.

if u have problem after this please let us know.
