Hi, I'm running 6.2-RELEASE-p4, and Apache 1.3.37. I'd like to
add SSL support, but I'm not sure of the best way to go about it.
Specifically section 22.214.171.124, it mentions you can add ssl support with
mod_ssl, but I don't see it in my ports tree.
I also found this:
Which seems to suggest that I'd need to have installed the apache
port /usr/ports/www/apache13-modssl instead of the package apache-1.3.37_3.
So, do I need to remove the apache-1.3.37_3 package (presumably with
pkg_delete, as I think that's the cleanest way, please correct me if I'm
wrong), and re-install from the apache13-modssl port, or is there in
fact some way to just get mod_ssl and add to my existing Apache
configuration? If both options are possible, is one better than the
other? I'd prefer not to have to re-do my apache install, but if
there's some compelling reason I should, I'm interested in knowing it.
Also, when I've got it, I want users to have the option to use it,
not be forced to (tinkering with a Squirrelmail webmail server here), so
any information on that would be more than welcome.
