Setting up HTTPS in Apache with Linux

I have recently setup a HTTP server using Apache.

This was my first install of Apache, so I am very new to it.

What I would now like to do is setup HTTPS for my server.
Unfortunately, the official Apache 2.2 manual doesn't cover setting up HTTPS, and using Google search engine I have found tutorials using modified versions of Apache, which are no use for me as I chosen to use the official release.

I am hoping someone can tutor me on how to achieve serving HTTPS with Apache 2.2.19.

I ask the tutor gives instructions that are only relevant to setting up HTTPS.
I have found allot of tutorials give examples, then go on to say 'well this can also be done by doing da da da.. but this can be covered in another tutorial.'. That just confuses the hell out of me.
After achieving HTTPS, I will be all ears for recommendations and other topics related (or not related) to HTTPS.

If the tutor will be showing reference code, I ask that the reference code be from a default file apart of official Apache 2.2.xx release only. This will eliminate inconsistency.

Some information that might be of help to the tutor:
I am using the Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS distribution of GNU/Linux and Apache 2.2.19. I serve two virtual hosts.
I have been using GNU/Linux for a year, understand the fundamentals of IP and have ran a HTTP server under Windows for years.

Apache::Session::Informix(3pm)				User Contributed Perl Documentation			    Apache::Session::Informix(3pm)

Apache::Session::Informix - An implementation of Apache::Session SYNOPSIS
use Apache::Session::Informix; #if you want Apache::Session to open new DB handles: tie %hash, 'Apache::Session::Informix', $id, { DataSource => 'dbi:Informix:sessions', UserName => $db_user, Password => $db_pass, Commit => 1 }; #or, if your handles are already opened: tie %hash, 'Apache::Session::Informix', $id, { Handle => $dbh, Commit => 1 }; DESCRIPTION
This module is an implementation of Apache::Session. It uses the Informix backing store and no locking. See the example, and the documentation for Apache::Session::Store::Informix for more details. USAGE
The special Apache::Session argument for this module is Commit. You MUST provide the Commit argument, which instructs this module to either commit the transaction when it is finished, or to simply do nothing. This feature is provided so that this module will not have adverse interactions with your local transaction policy, nor your local database handle caching policy. The argument is mandatory in order to make you think about this problem. This module also respects the LongReadLen argument, which specifies the maximum size of the session object. If not specified, the default maximum is 8 KB. AUTHOR
This module was written by Jeffrey William Baker <>. SEE ALSO
