No, SSL is enabled by default usually, but if it's not, run:

sudo a2enmod ssl

You can check if it's running by doing:

netstat -na | grep :443

It should look like this:

xterm@dellxps:~$ netstat -na | grep :443
tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:443             0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN

Not to deal with SSL.  Apache will do all the SSL communications with the browser.

You mentioned in the original post that you're running Apache/PHP so I assume that part is already working.

If that's the case, PHP needs nothing - it is only executed after the browser has successfully negotiated a SSL stream with Apache.
