if SSL is defined httpd should complain about missing mod_ssl.so, etc.

           Summary: if SSL is defined httpd should complain about missing
                    mod_ssl.so, etc.
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.32
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: hauser@acm.org


It is understood that due to (historic mostly?) reasons, mod_ssl cannot be
distributed as freely as the rest of apache. But since for probably 99+ % of the
people downloading apache, this is a non-issue, I suggest to at least safely
warn naive admin's that in the case they did not touch the httpd.conf file in an
SSL-related way, just because "apachectl sslstart" didn't thow out any warnings,
that doesn't mean SSL is operational. In fact, one may easily end up with a
running httpd that lets users access 443 with http (not httpS).
Therefore, my suggestion is to check in httpd for the mod_ssl.so and other key
variables determinig whether SSL is properly deployed when -DSSL is used on the
command line at start-up.

P.S.: the companion request to similarly improve apachectl is in
