  2. Import this CA to any client accessing your SSL host.

  3. Creating an SSL certificate for any desired service.

Using SSL with Apache requires the activation of the corresponding module. The Ubuntu version of Apache comes with a two command a2enmod and a2dismod to enable or disable modules. This will affect the creation of symbolic links from /etc/apache2/mods-enabled to /etc/apache2/mods-available.
