Invalid command ‘SSLEngine’ – How to enable mod_ssl

linux apache

If you’ve just set up apache and you try using the SSL feature, you’ll most probably get the following error:

Invalid command ‘SSLEngine’, perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included

This is caused by mod_ssl not being enabled. mod_ssl comes bundled with the apache-common package but it is not enabled by default. To enable it execute the following:

a2enmod ssl

You may then restart apache;

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
