Well, in that case...
one more reason to do it step by step, isn't it?

If you have to do that, you've done something wrong anyway.
The HTTPS and the HTTP - configurations are separate. You're not
supposed to "add SSL to HTTP", you normally "set up HTTPS".

I've done this many times on Windows, but only twice on Linux so far.
Incidentally, the last time was Ubuntu 8.04 (beta). Only a local test
system, though.
I set it up, made sure it works, then never used it again :-)
As far as I remember, setting up https was relatively easy, but setting
up client certificates caused me a bit of a headache... don't remember
why, though...

Depending on what and how much you've already done, you can always
remove (purge) and re-install Apache to get a clean starting point...
Maybe you want to make a copy of the config files before you do that...

It's 2.2

I'd go with 2.2 by now. It's been out for a while and it's default on
