11.6.2. Enabling the mod_ssl Module

If you intend to set up an SSL server, make sure you have the mod_ssl (the mod_ssl module) and openssl (the OpenSSL toolkit) packages installed. To do so, type the following at a shell prompt:
~]# yum install mod_ssl openssl
This will create the mod_ssl configuration file at /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf, which is included in the main Apache HTTP Server configuration file by default. For the module to be loaded, restart the httpd service as described in Section 11.2.3, “Restarting the Service”.
