I have been visiting to the following SSL website in order to get information on how to set up ssl connection on apache 2.X on windows.


However, I was wondering if anyone might be able to help me verify things here when it is said (I quote) as follows:

We found precompiled binary distributions of Apache and OpenSSL available at http://hunter.campbus.com/. Archives are available as well (see resources, left). The file we downloaded was called: Apache_2.0.48-Openssl_0.9.7c-Win32.zip. Unzip this file into a folder. We will refer to this folder as [apache_root] . In the rest of this article, where you see [apache root], please fill in the name of your folder instead.

Openssl.cnf is a configuration file that you can find in the download for this article (see left column). Copy this file to the [apache_root]\bin directory. OpenSSL will use this file when you are generating your key. In order for this file to be visible from OpenSSL you will need to create an environment variable called OPENSSL_CONF. The method of setting environment variables varies on different versions of Windows, so refer to your Windows Help to find out how to do it for your version of Windows. The environment variable should be set as follows:


My problem is that i have downloaded the exact version of openssl from the site shown above and followed as directed up to a point where i need to copy openssl.cnf to bin. Where can i find openssl.cnf file?

Is there anyone might be able to point me to the right direction?

Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you
