The configurations for SSL connections (including the CIPHERS used) for Apache 2 on Linux systems is usually in the "include" file located at /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf

This is also where you identify your own CERTIFICATES (for each site -- even each page, potentially), and so forth.

For mod_ssl it is these:

SSLProtocol (disable SSL2 ssl3)
SSLCipherSuite (disable null cyphers etc)

"enable TLS 1.2" needs OpenSSL ibrary v1.0.1, or Nss 3.15.1 or gnutls 3.3.5+
Choose newer OS version if sufficient SSL toolkit is not available.

Thanks Gheist,  do you have an example of this I can look at? I just want to make sure I have the correct config.

Read a respectable guide:

SSLProtocol -SSLv2 -SSLv3

go back to and run "ssl server test" to see if something is still missing.
