Apache: On Windows, under Services, Under Appache, in the Description, I have Apache/2.2.3 win32 mod_ssl/2.2.3 Open SSL /0.9.8d

Does that mean I have Mod_SSL and Open SSL both installed?  What's the difference between the two? If I upgrade to 2.2.21-win32-x86-openssl-0.9.8r.msi  will that break anything?
Watch Question

You have both MOD_SSL and OpenSSL installed. MOD_SSL is the interface apache uses to utilise the cryptographic functions of OpenSSL.

Looking at your "upgrade" you would infact be going from Apache 2.2.3 to Apache 2.2.21.


Mike, can you help me by giving me the URL for downloading the latest version of Apache?  One that includes OpenSSL.  Thank you very much.

This is a direct link to the installer download for the latest (stable release) Windows installer for Apache with SSL.
