I am trying to install mod_ssl on my server with:

yum install mod_ssl

All i get in response is:

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: centosv4-msync-dvd.centos.org
 * extras: centosq4-msync-dvd.centos.org
 * updates: centosv4.centos.org
Setting up Install Process
No package mod_ssl available.
Error: Nothing to do

I am trying to install a self signed SSL-certificate, and I realized I was missing mod_ssl when I couldn't find the ssl.conf file.

How can I install mod_ssl?

  • Are you really using CentOS4, which is about to be desupported? – cjc Jan 31 '12 at 16:56

    Hm, my CentOS 4 has mod_ssl. You may want to check that you have reasonable yum repositories in your /etc/yum.repos.d. – Bittrance Jan 31 '12 at 17:35
  • Do a yum repolist and post it... – Nils Jan 31 '12 at 20:56
  • added the repolist – Anders Feb 6 '12 at 20:42

and also try

yum search mod_ssl 


yum install mod_ssl.XX <- as listed from yum search output.

if you can't find any of the packages try and install source forge repo, it has thousands of packages and mod_ssl is there

Try clear cache:

yum clean packages
yum install mod_ssl
