Are you not able to install it via a package?  Do you have some special compiling options or weird distro or something?

The file INSTALL is a text documentation file containing exact installation instructions.

If you are using a distro that has 'yum' installed, just use that to install it and it should take care of everything including dropping in the ssl.conf for apache and (maybe) setting up a self-signed cert.  Maybe apt-get will do the same for Debian.

Either way if you can install a pre-compiled package, especially if it is via a package manager, do it.

mod_ssl is usually bundled within apache2. Are you using apache that came with the Linux distribution? Then you would only need to the specific Apache config file that contains the modules and Enable it, or add an appropriate link in 'mods_enabled' subdirectory of the config file. If you tell us the exact distribution you are using, we can give you the precise answer.

If you compile the apache yourself, you need to specify --with-ssl at ./configure run time.

I couldnt do yum cause Im on a private biz network that cant see cloud...
I made an ISO and connected it to my VM slice for install

>>compile
I did do my own make & make install

Apache is 2.2.3  

I think I gotta add the appropriate link in 'mods_enabled' subdirectory of the config file
thats the approach Im going to try today...

thx for gettin back  to me.

jandersonwidener,

If you compiled it you need to check if you did enable the SSL during the configure stage.
Please check the config.log generated during the compilation process.

As I stated earlier, you need to configure it with option '--with-ssl' to have mod_ssl capability.

>>Please check the config.log
how in the world do I do that ?

I thought I read in the latest apache I can set them all up and enable them later...

I did a httpd -M to list out all modules and I see mod_ssl(shared) so all must be good on that end.
