I have recently installed a new apache webserver on my red hat linux server. It was working fine on port 2345. I have recently tried to enable https on it and added the required parameters like below, since when apache is not starting. It gives the error,

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

httpd: Syntax error on line 43 of /apps/elsdev/apache/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load /apps/elsdev/apache/modules/mod_ssl.so into server: /apps/elsdev/apache/modules/mod_ssl.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


LoadModule ssl_module /apps/elsdev/apache/modules/mod_ssl.so

<IfDefine SSL>

  SSLEngine on
  SSLCertificateFile /apps/elsdev/ssl/sabweb-dev-02.cer
  SSLCertificateKeyFile /apps/elsdev/ssl/server.key
  SSLCertificateChainFile /apps/elsdev/ssl/TEST_SSL_CA.cer

</IfDefine>

Versions info::

Apache webserver: httpd-2.2.17
Red Hat Linux         :

$ uname -a
Linux web-dev-02 2.6.18-128.1.14.el5 #1 SMP Mon Jun 1 15:52:58 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Please let me what I am doing wrong?

Is SELinux turned on?  If so you may need adjust for the SSL cert files.

Also I have added a recent version of mod_ssl and tried. It gave me error

httpd: Syntax error on line 43 of /apps/elsdev/apache/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load /apps/elsdev/apache/modules/mod_ssl.so into server: /apps/elsdev/apache/modules/mod_ssl.so: cannot read file data: Is a directory

mod_ssl version : mod_ssl-2.8.30-1.3.39

How to determine a module 32 bit or 64 bit?
I think my linux server is of 64 bit. so where can I get a 64 bit module?
Please provide me the links.

getenforce command will tell you.

As objects said though, get the 64bit module first.

You can compile it from source http://www.modssl.org/source/ or better yet, download it from the Red Hat repository.
