How to install Apache 2.0.50 with SSL on windows?
Posted on 2004-09-15
I used apache back in 1999 and didn't need SSL for our intranet. When our organization required all webservers to use SSL, I couldn't switch to Unix (that wasn't allowed) and the SSL stuff for Apache was horribly documented and never worked. I ended up installing WebSite Pro on NT, got a certificate installed and was done. Fast forward to now. I'm back in the same organization with the same server. WebSite Pro is no longer supported. The server is still on WinNT (again, I can't change it due to the network Gods) but I need to upgrade other application software that doesn't recognize WebSite Pro. I'm forced to get Apache on windows to work with SSL.
I've searched the internet and found several links, but nothing comprehensive that is pointing me in the right direction.
I'm about ready to forget it and not install the new application server. Seems kind of crazy. If Apache wants people to use SSL on Windows, the Apache organization should provide some decent instructions.
Ok...that's my rant. Does anyone have a step by step way to get SSL installed in windows with Apache 2? I've heard it can be done but I have no compiler available to me and I can't see how to get there from here. I've downloaded and tried several things but I must not be doing it correctly.
