I'm trying to get apache running over https with mod_ssl on a rhel 5.4 x64 machine.

I don't have in the modules directory, nor can i find any ssl type output from httpd -M or httpd -l.

Yet if i run ldd against it i can see relevant shared library dependencies.

ldd /usr/sbin/httpd
  <blah> => /lib64/ (0x00002b69cf11a000) => /lib64/ (0x00002b69d1348000) => /lib64/ (0x00002b69d1592000)

Do i need configure mod_ssl somehow to make it work as yum can't seem to find the relevent module to install itself.

Okay, so the ldd output is a red herring and i actually need to go get the source and compile from that? – Decado May 31 '11 at 9:11
yes if it apache web server, you will need to configure web server for modssl – Gaurav Singh May 31 '11 at 9:13
