Step 3: Enable SSL on Apache
Assuming you installed apache with the openssl module the next step is to enable it. uncomment the relevent line in the loadmodules section of httpd.conf.
LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so
Next ensure that apache is listening on port 443. In older versions of apache the ssl settings were included in the main conf file. In that instance you would add the listen directive in the main conf file.
For me however the ssl settings have been moved into a seperate text file "extras/httpd-ssl.conf" so I simply uncommented the relevent include file in the main conf file.
# Secure (SSL/TLS) connections
