Apache 2, PHP, OpenSSL configuration?

I have a FreeBSD 4.8 box that I'm trying to get SSL working on via OpenSSL. I've already got Apache2, MySQL, and PHP installed. I'd like to get OpenSSL working with it now. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I looked at a previous post where the recommended a link but the link was dead.

    SSL is already part of Apache2. What you need to do is either create your own certificates ( or buy one. Configure the server in the /usr/local/etc/apache2/ssl.conf file. There make sure to point the server to where it can find the certificates it needs.

    Then start Apache with SSL support: apachectl startssl

    Ok well I'm trying to configure a program called Zen-Cart and when it checks the server over is shows that "PHP OpenSSL Support = Off". Is there a seperate place in the php.ini file where you can turn it on?

    Accepted Solution

    You have to compile PHP with OpenSSL support. When you install PHP from ports you can configure in OpenSSL support in the menu options that will pop up when you attempt to install it.
