Bug#267477: apache2: let's sum it up. Quick steps to set it up.

Package: apache2
Version: 2.0.52-3
Followup-For: Bug #267477

Well, with all the above information and my own sperience I will put
here the minimum number of steps to get it to work.

0) have apache working without SSL (easy: apt-get install apache2)
1) exec "a2enmod ssl"
2) add "Listen 443" to /etc/apache2/ports.conf
3) exec "apache2-ssl-certificate"
4) exec "cp /etc/apache2/sites-available/default /etc/apache2/sites-available/myown-ssl"
5) edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/myown-ssl
        change <VirtualHost *> to <VirtualHost *:443>
   add this just before </VirtualHost> 
        SSLEngine on
        SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.pem
        SSLProtocol all
        SSLCipherSuite HIGH:MEDIUM
6) exec "a2ensite myown-ssl"
7) exec "/etc/init.d/apache2 restart"
There are other ways, but I think this is de minimal set of steps if you
want to get it quickly to work. Then you should tune it for yourself. 

I think this info should appear in /usr/share/doc/apache2
