    apache update

    Let's say I've got apache up and running with tons of pages.
    Now I want to include https support for existing installation. I downloaded mod_ssl and openssl and in the instrustions I see that I have to run the following:
    # cd openssl-0.9.6b
    # sh config
    # make
    # make test
    # make install
    -------------------------------------------
    Apache - Install mod_ssl]
    -------------------------------------------
    # cd ../mod_ssl-2.8.5-1.3.22
    # ./configure --with-apache=../apache_1.3.22
    -------------------------------------------
    Apache - Install Apache]
    -------------------------------------------
    # cd ../apache_1.3.22
    # SSL_BASE=../openssl-0.9.6b/ \
    ./configure --enable-module=ssl \
    --enable-module=so \
    --prefix=/usr/local/www/
    # make
    # make certificate
    # make install

    apache_1.3.22 is the directory from which I installed apache.It looks like I have to run mod_ssl that places some info into the installation directory and then run installation again that will be compiled with sll support.
    Hence the question - it looks like that in order to incorporate ssl support into existing apache installation I'll have to reinstall apache - will it harm existing website? Is there any other option to add ssl support ot existing web site?
    Thanks.

    Re: apache update

    Make a backup file of httpd.conf and off you go...

    As far as I can remember, you do not need to reinstall the Apache to have SSL support running. But I run Apache-ssl as separate process. I know Red Hat tend to throw everything together.....

    Re: apache update

    Apache-ssl is a different package than Apache ( standard is ). What they do is install them onto two different directories and start up as that. So the apache is controlled by apachectl applet and apache-sslctl control the apache-ssl daemon. ( at least that's how it's in my Debian Woody )
