As i am using Centos 4.8 they do not support base repository for yum any more. so i cant install through yum . the only option i have is to configure the apache with
.\configure --enable-ssl .

hi,

By Default Yum install on Centos-4.8 with online,but you have not internet then you can create repo

#vi /etc/yum.repo.d/server.repo
[server]
name=server
baseurl=file:\\\media\cdrecoder\CentOS\RPMS\
gpgcheck=0
enable=1

and save this file

# yum install openssl-*
#yum install mod_ssl-*

######################

Otherwise, you can install manually,

#cd /media/cdrecorder\Centos\RPMS
#rpm -ivh openssl-*
#rpm -ivh mod_ssl-*

You need to add them to your http.conf -
LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so
SSLSessionCache        shmcb:/path/path(512000)

Open in new window


Take a look on the following in SSLSessionCache -
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mod_ssl.html#sslsessioncache

Example http.conf with SSL -
