Apache configuration using SSL

Hi all,

I am Piramanayagam. I am working in Linux for the last 1 year. I need to configure a subversion server in linux. So, I installed Apache 2.2.3 and the installation was successful. I am able to start the apache server using "./apachectl start" and it is working fine. But, If I start "/apachectl startssl" it throws the following error.

The startssl option is no longer supported.
Please edit httpd.conf to include the SSL configuration settings
and then use apachectl start.

I used the following parameter for apache configuration.

./configure --enable-dav --enable-dav-fs
make install

Kindly help me to solve this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Like the message says, you need to edit httpd.conf so Apache will use SSL. To find its location, use "locate httpd.conf".

You may also check mod_ssl module is present.
