I'm simply trying to install mod_ssl on a CentOS server. Doing a straightforward sudo yum install mod_ssl would return an error:

Error: httpd24-tools conflicts with httpd-tools-2.2.25-1.0.amzn1.x86_64
Error: httpd24 conflicts with httpd-2.2.25-1.0.amzn1.x86_64
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I tried to remove httpd-tools by: sudo yum remove httpd-tools-2.2.25-1.0.amzn1.x86_64 but no luck.

I also did sudo yum -v remove httpd-tools-2.2.25-1.0.amzn1.x86_64 and outputs this:

Yum Version: 3.2.29
rpmdb time: 0.000

Package(s) httpd-tools-2.2.25-1.0.amzn1.x86_64 available, but not installed.
No Packages marked for removal

And, when doing sudo yum search mod_ssl will output this: enter image description here

None of what I tried to do works. Anything that I am missing?

CentOS or Amazon Linux, which is it? I've never had to manually install mod_ssl on Amazon Linux, it comes automatically with the http / http24 packages. –  ceejayoz Oct 29 '13 at 13:42
@ceejayoz - How did you install your LAMP stack? –  Leandro Garcia Oct 29 '13 at 19:26
yum install httpd24 php54 mysql55-server plus a variety of modules that fit my requirements. Again, this is Amazon Linux, which is similar but not the same as CentOS. –  ceejayoz Oct 29 '13 at 19:34
