Installing /usr/share/ssl or equivalent


Edit:
----------------------
Since posting this question, I need to post more information. openssl is also installed, and it seems that /usr/share/ssl is part of the open ssl toolkit. I am just confused as to why this directory is not present on the newer version of apache.
End Edit:
----------------------

I am migrating an apache server from 2.0.52 to 2.2.3. On the 2.0.52 system my /etc/httpd/conf has these entries for ssl (partial listing)

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 37 Jul 24 17:05 Makefile -> ../../../usr/share/ssl/ce
rts/Makefile
drwx------ 3 root root 4096 Jul 24 17:05 ssl.crl
drwx------ 3 root root 4096 Jul 24 17:05 ssl.crt
drwx------ 3 root root 4096 May 9 2008 ssl.csr
drwx------ 3 root root 4096 May 9 2008 ssl.key
drwx------ 3 root root 4096 May 9 2008 ssl.prm

My newer server does not have these entries, but mod_ssl is installed on the new server.

What do I need to run to install these ssl files?

I have the original certificate files, but do not see any files that would have installed these directories or what is in /usr/share/ssl.

Any pointers would be appreciated.

tnx

Since you have the certificate and key files, locate httpd.conf and search how ssl is configured. Depending on distro, ssl settings are in another file (usually named ssl.conf) that is included in httpd.conf. If that's the case edit ssl.conf and change "SSLCertificateFile" and "SSLCertificateKeyFile" accordingly.
