http://www.linuxhelp.net/guides/apachessl/ Even better
-1) Install OpenSSL
[root@system root]$ cd /usr/local/src/openssl-0.9.7
[root@system openssl-0.9.6]$ ./config
[root@system openssl-0.9.6]$ make
[root@system openssl-0.9.6]$ make install

-2) Download Apache 1.3.x and the OpenSSL Patch apachessl.org and untar in same directory
-3) ./Fixpatch choose Yes
-4) ./configure --prefix=/opt/apache --enable-module=so --enable-rule=SHARED_CORE
-5) make
-6) make install
-7) Copy the src directory to /opt/apache/
-8) copy the httpsd.conf to /opt/apache
-9) Edit httpsd.conf

-10) Generate Cert and CSR and Cert

If you have alreay installed apache on RH 9, then go to /etc/httpd/conf/ssl and open the file mod_ssl.conf

Check the the following lines are uncommented

Listen 443

AddType application/x-x509-ca-cert .crt
AddType application/x-pkcs7-crl    .cr

SSLPassPhraseDialog  builtin

SSLSessionCache        shm:logs/ssl_scache(512000)
SSLSessionCacheTimeout  300

SSLMutex  sem

SSLRandomSeed startup builtin
SSLRandomSeed connect builtin
