OK - returning this message back to the list.

The issue here is that the Apache engine is being called without the -D
SSL flag from the command line. If Apache is being started from a
service, it typically would not carry this flag.

So - comment out the <IfDefine> and </IfDefine> directives in this file
or make sure your service is starting with a -D SSL flag.

Also - when I was testing this - my Apache engine puked on the SSLMutex
setting. The setting of sem is "only available when the underlying
platform and APR supports" it. This is true for many of the SSLMutex
options, so unless you have specifically compiled some of these other
methods, set the value to "default".

Once these changes were made, the system was off and running on SSL. My
test setup worked, and I walked Brad through making sure his system was up.

Regards,
Frank
