10.5: Enable https on 10.5's Apache2 web server
Authored by: chaseholden on Jan 29, '12 02:05:41AM
BTW: here's where to do this with Snow Leopard and Lion OS 10.6 10.7+ , although this is for creating self signed certificates only, not as your own CA (certificate authority):

Configure SSL on Lion's Apache

...otherwise, the above instructions generate the following error on Lion's apache:

bash-3.2# /System/Library/OpenSSL/misc/ -signreq Using configuration from /System/Library/OpenSSL/openssl.cnf

Error opening CA private key ./demoCA/private/cakey.pem 16021:error:02001002:system library:fopen:No such file or directory:/SourceCache/OpenSSL098/OpenSSL098-44/src/crypto/bio/bss_file.c:356:fopen('./demoCA/private/cakey.pem','r') 16021:error:20074002:BIO routines:FILE_CTRL:system lib:/SourceCache/OpenSSL098/OpenSSL098-44/src/crypto/bio/bss_file.c:358: unable to load CA private key Signed certificate is in newcert.pem

(the signed certificate it claims that it makes after all of those errors is, in fact, not valid nor legitimate. it has no functionality and is neither signed nor certified.
