Subject RE: [users@httpd] SSL and apache 2.2.15 installed from source. How to?
Date Wed, 23 Jun 2010 07:04:59 GMT

Do you have the ssl module in your module folder?? . the file name would be
mod_ssl.so under /Apache/modules/ path

Best Regards

Subject: [users@httpd] SSL and apache 2.2.15 installed from source. How to?

I want to serve files via https on my apache server.

I did this already using a lighttpd web server and it was easy.

I just had to follow this document:

http://redmine.lighttpd.net/wiki/lighttpd/Docs:SSL

Now I am ambitious.

I want to do the same thing but on Apache.

I'm using Apache 2.2.15

I created a very simple httpd.conf file which basically has this in it:

ServerRoot "/pt/apache"
Listen localhost:8000

<Directory "/pt/apache/htdocs">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>

<IfModule ssl_module>
SSLRandomSeed startup builtin
SSLRandomSeed connect builtin
</IfModule>

I started apache with this command line:

apachectl graceful

And I found that apache works fine.

Next  I looked around in conf/

I found this interesting file:

conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf

I made these changes to it:

Listen localhost:8443


<VirtualHost _default_:8443>

#   General setup for the virtual host
DocumentRoot "/pt/apache/htdocs"
ServerName localhost:8443
ServerAdmin you@localhost
SSLCertificateFile "/pt/apache/conf/server.pem"


My pem file looks like this:

-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
MIICXQIBAAKBgQCr6bXTBZZeGbo05I8VWCXFl92kbc7E6TpFTzxhWgMeOyr9BkDw
snip
U0piIs+1OcgZP5PBOXZilLAFeBz71xvRyLIeAI20cgoY
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIDdTCCAt6gAwIBAgIJAP1Hv+6EsYubMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBBAUAMIGEMQswCQYD
snip
wPtx995cyTbVeQBwfltVrlAXv+5ND3F0Qw==
-----END CERTIFICATE-----


Then...

I added this line to conf/httpd.conf:

Include conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf

Which, I assume, "pulls" httpd-ssl.conf into httpd.conf

Next, I tried this:

$ apachectl graceful

I saw:

Syntax error on line 62 of /pt/apache/conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf:
Invalid command 'SSLSessionCache', perhaps misspelled or defined by a
module not included in the server configuration
httpd not running, trying to start

So it looks like I need to: "define a module" in the server configuration.

I'm not sure how to do that.

I see this syntax in my httpd.conf

<IfModule ssl_module>
SSLRandomSeed startup builtin
SSLRandomSeed connect builtin
</IfModule>

What's it do?
Is it supposed to "define a module"


I looked at this URL suggested by a friend:

http://www.tc.umn.edu/~brams006/selfsign_ubuntu.html

The above URL suggests I do this:

run the /usr/sbin/a2enmod script

But, my version of apache does not have an a2enmod script (or an sbin
directory).

BTW, here is my version:
2.2.15

And here is where I got it:
  - http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi#apache22
  - http://download.nextag.com/apache/httpd/httpd-2.2.15.tar.gz

I installed it with these 3 commands:

./configure --prefix=/pt/apache
make
make install

Here is what my server root looks like:

  /pt/apache:

  drwxr-xr-x    3 maco  staff   102 Jun 19 12:41 modules

If you have a minute or 3,
Please send me clues or a URL to a how-to for Apache 2.2.15 and SSL.

In the mean time I'll see if I can get SSL to work on nginx.

Thanks!
