I am trying to support HTTPS traffic with the mod_ssl module on my website. I am running an Amazon EC2 instance for my server. I have installed and configured the basic LAMP packages. However, when I go to put in SSL-specific commands in my apache config files (ie.
SSLCertificateFile, etc) it spits out an error and says that I have a syntax error or the module is not loaded.
My next step was to try
$ sudo yum install mod_ssl. However, yum comes back and says, "Processing Conflict...Error: httpd24-tools conflicts with httpd-tools". So, I figured that mod_ssl is included in the httpd-tools package. I then ran
$ sudo yum install httpd24-tools but it comes back and tells me I already have that package installed.
Now how come I have the httpd-tools package installed, and mod_ssl is not loaded in my system? Isn't mod_ssl included in the httpd-tools package? I created a test php file
<?php echo phpinfo(); ?> just to make sure. My suspicions were confirmed—no 'mod_ssl' is listed under the apache2handler loaded modules table in phpinfo.
So, I'm not exactly sure how to load in/install/configure mod_ssl with the Amazon Linux AMI's. Any help would be appreciated. Here's my current specs:
- Amazon Linux AMI 2012.09
- Apache 2.4
- PHP 5.4
Ran this command to setup server:
$ sudo yum install httpd24 php54 php54-devel php54-mysql php54-common php54-gd php54-xml php54-mbstring php54-mcrypt php54-pecl-apc mysql-server mod_ssl openssl httpd54-devel mysql libjpeg libpng phpmyadmin
