Aaron you did not read it..

The problem I have is it will not do a deinstall as there is other
packages that are using it, so a deinstall and reinstall does not work.

I have mod_ssl working on other machines, but they will be decommissioned
as soon as I get the other server up with mod_ssl.

we forgot to install mod_ssl before getting this system up, so now we are
trying to get it running.
