Arrow Missing locale warning while enabling the ssl module in Apache (Ubuntu 16.04)


After configuring a virtual host to use HTTPS, I enabled the ssl module with the following command:

sudo a2enmod ssl
The module was enabled, but I got this warning message:
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
	LANGUAGE = (unset),
	LC_ALL = (unset),
	LC_PAPER = "es_AR.UTF-8",
	LC_ADDRESS = "es_AR.UTF-8",
	LC_NUMERIC = "es_AR.UTF-8",
	LC_NAME = "es_AR.UTF-8",
	LANG = "en_US.UTF-8"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to a fallback locale ("en_US.UTF-8").
The question is, what are the expected side effects (if any) of using the ssl module without the right locale?

I eventually solved the warning message by installing language-pack-es, but I'm still wondering if that was strictly necessary security or functionality-wise.

Thanks in advance.


apache, ssl, ubuntu
