I have a working instance of Apache 2.0.49 running without SSL on Windows Server 2003 Standard, and I'd like to get that working. I've been all around this site and the web, and there doesn't seem to be any definitive info on getting mod_ssl to work with Apache 2. Most information I find relates to the latest version of Apache 1.x. For example, this howto:
has links to a binary install, but it's only Apache 1.x. I put the mod_ssl.so file found in the binary apache/openSSL distribution linked to in the howto (http://hunter.campbus.com/Apache_1.3.29-Mod_SSL_2.8.16-Openssl_0.9.7d-Win32.zip
) into my Apache 2 "modules" directory, generated a demo certificate/key in OpenSSL, and altered my httpd.conf file as described in the howto. But when I attempt to start Apache, I get an error that the module file could not be found. I assume I need to compile mod_ssl from source to work properly, but I don't have any compilers available to me as far as I know.
We're creating a new Apache/Cold Fusion MX environment, so I figured I might as well go with the latest version of Apache possible. Should I just ditch my attempt at Apache 2 and just use the tried-and-true apache 1.x?
