It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The error message tells you exactly what the problem is - there's no package called mod_ssl in the repository.

To get Apache working with SSL, the packages you need are httpd and openssl.

I am pretty sure that it should'nt be installed that way, but instead using something like:

yum install openssl / something similar.
