Not sure what documentation your following so I'll just write down the instructions. I'd look at Apache's site for the docs on mod_ssl, there is a good ow to there. Now for the good stuff.

Google openssl its your new best friend and secrete enemy. The docs suck but if you know kinda what your looking for you can make it work be sure to look at the examples.

So the hard part of setting this up is the PKI certificates. Its 3 steps:

1) generate a key # openssl genrsa -des3 2048 2) create cert request # openssl x509 -req -out cert.csr ΔΔ see openssl example this is probably wrong they have one for a self signed cert, but this is close. 3) sign certificate This is normally done by our ca look at verisign or thawt. The will give similar instructions.
