Hi all,

Iv been working on a linux server lately. Iv managed to get apache, mysql and php installed. However the next step was to set up SSL on apache.

Ok so i do what iv read everywhere about enabling SSL, run the config:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache2 --enable-rewrite=shared --enable-shared=max --enable-module=so --enable-ssl

And this is what happens:

checking whether to enable mod_ssl... checking dependencies
checking for SSL/TLS toolkit base... none
checking for OpenSSL version... checking openssl/opensslv.h usability... no
checking openssl/opensslv.h presence... no
checking for openssl/opensslv.h... no
checking openssl/ssl.h usability... no
checking openssl/ssl.h presence... no
checking for openssl/ssl.h... no
no OpenSSL headers found
checking for SSL-C version... checking sslc.h usability... no
checking sslc.h presence... no
checking for sslc.h... no
no SSL-C headers found
configure: error: ...No recognized SSL/TLS toolkit detected

OpenSSL is installed, and my boss needs this sorted out, any ideas?

Make sure that the OpenSSL-devel package is installed - Apache needs the header files in order to build the SSL module.
