First off, What is your OS? Linux? if so what flavor(distrobution) windows? then your outta luck - i cant help you

if you are running sometihng like Debian ( personal recommendation)
apt-get install openssl
a2enmod ssl
/etc/init.d/apache2 reload
then you need to add
Listen 443
to /etc/apache2/ports.conf

then add:
SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.pem
to all your virtual hosts that require it.

and you have just successfully installed openssl

The above setup is a problem if you are not the owner of the server or rather if you do not have full access to the config files.

What do you need to use it for?

To encrypt data on a page that would be sending debit/credit card details to mysql/

Is there any other ssl distribution that can be used under windows and apache and how does it work?
