How to install an SSL cert on a LAMP server [SOLVED]

Post by ckosloff »

Of course, I know they can be bought.
I just want to get apache to work in https mode.
I know there is something I need to install from the repos, but don't know what it is.
Thanks.

I think the software is already there, its just a question of knowing the right commands and using it properly

Thanks for answer.
I have installed apache-mod_ssl in my Mandriva LAMP server and it works beautifully without anything else.
The problem is that Ubuntu server uses libapache2-mod-gnutls, the comments say:
"mod_gnutls provides SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, and TLS 1.1 encryption with the GnuTLS
library. It is similar in purpose to mod_ssl, but does not use OpenSSL."
Now, please note that the instructions you send do use OpenSSL.
I would be happy if I could just install apache-mod_ssl from the repos, but apparently this is not available for this version of apache and the lib provided simply does not work.

The answer is in usr/share/doc/apache2.2-common/readme.debian.gz
That is if you installed the LAMP metapackage from the Ubuntu repos, using Mint.
