I have installed Apache httpd a while ago and have recently come back to it to try setup SSL and get it serving several different tomcat servers.
At the moment I have two completely separate tomcat instances serving up to slightly different versions (one for Dev and one for demo say) my web app to two different ports;
I've successfully (back in Jan) used mod_jk to get httpd to serve those same tomcat instances to
http://www.mydomain.com:8090/demo (8090 cos I've got another app running on 8080 via Jetty at this stage) using the following code in httpd.conf;
LoadModule jk_module modules/mod_jk.so JkWorkersFile conf/workers.properties JkLogFile logs/mod_jk.log JkLogLevel debug <VirtualHost *:8090> JkMount /devd* tomcatDev JkMount /demo* tomcatDemo </VirtualHost>
What I'm not trying to do is enable SSL
I've added the following to httpd.conf
Listen 443 <VirtualHost _default_:443> JkMount /dev* tomcatDev JkMount /demo* tomcatDemo SSLEngine on SSLCertificateFile "/opt/httpd/conf/localhost.crt" SSLCertificateKeyFile "/opt/httpd/conf/keystore.key" </VirtualHost>
But when I try to restart Apache with "apachectl restart" (yes after shutting down that other app I mentioned so it doesn't toy with https connections) I continuously get the error;
"Invalid command 'SSLEngine', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration. httpd not running, trying to start"
I've looked in the httpd/modules dir and indeed there is no mod_ssl, only mod_jk.so and httpd.exp.
I've tried using yum to install mod_ssl, it says its already installed. Indeed I can locate mod_ssl.so in /usr/lib/httpd/modules but this is NOT the path to where I've installed httpd which is /opt/httpd and in fact /usr/lib/httpd contains nothing but the modules dir.
Can anyone tell me how to install mod_ssl properly for my installed location of httpd so I can get past this error:
