How do I upgrade SSL 2.0 to SSL 3.0?

I'm trying to upgrade my SSL 2.0 to SSL 3.0, do I have to recompile a new key? Hoping it's not too complicated. I'm using Red Hat and Apache 2.0. Thanks in advance.

No.

You need just change (or add)  2 lines in apache config file:

SSLProtocol -all +TLSv1 +SSLv3
SSLCipherSuite HIGH:MEDIUM:!aNULL:+SHA1:+MD5:+HIGH:+MEDIUM

Great I did that and Apache started up with no errors. How can I check that it's running SSL 3.0?

Nevermind, I just went to my https website and checked the certificate details thru the browser. It is running version 3. Thanks!
