The article is spot on - well done for actually searching the web for
info *before* posting!

As the man says, if you're using a vendor apache, check it to see if you
already have a mod_ssl module ready to load (I don't think he gets the
name right - on my system, apache 2.2, it's modules/mod_ssl.so). 

If you compiled apache yourself, you need to compile the module -
instructions are in the INSTALL file in the distro.

Rgds,
Owen Boyle
