Dear Experts,

 I am using Linux CentOS6.5 with apache VPS server with the following apache version which is reported from phpinfo() php function.

Apache/2.2.23 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.23 OpenSSL/1.0.0-fips mod_bwlimited/1.4 PHP/5.3.21
Question-1 from the apache version, whether it is told I have already installed mod_ssl apache module or not ? If yes, why I could not find anything in "httpd.conf" file  like as follows quotes

LoadModule ssl_module modules/
Include conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf
Why ?

And I am doing SSL self-cert installation for CentOS and follow  this link to do it., and I could
NOT install mod_ssl modules from "yum install mod_ssl" (Error report: no package available) but I can generate the self-cert and its key by openssl command.  Now I go to visit my site with https such as that I can access the site index page but with red crossed mark and slash mark on https.

I could not find the file of either at /usr/local/apache/modules or /usr/lib64/httpd or all my directories with my root access. Why my site still works for SSL https  access even there is no any apache mod_ssl module enabled or exists ?

Question-3. How can I install mod_ssl module  if yum install mod_ssl is not working ?

More my information provided: I had used Cpanel before on my hosting company and now I've switched to VPS server and stop to use Cpanel(since Cpanel was expired)
