Here are my thoughts on it.

On *.nix distros, no problems. RPM find will get the files.

On Windows it is a different gether all to case :)

One of the reasons for SSL obscurity and availability is this:
Caution: there are significant restrictions and prohibitions on the use and distribution of strong cryptography and patented intellectual property throughout the world.


However it is possible but not easy:
Download the httpd-2.2.3-win32-src.zip from:

http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi

Now you will have to compile Apache from the zip file which contains the source mod_ssl files and all dependencies for SSL on Apache Win32.

Information on how to compile can be found here:

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/platfo ... iling.html

No one else seems to have a problem distributing code with cryptography. Skype has it and so do many other programs... If there is a will there is a way so might as well make it available.

Whatever the case thanks for the reply, I'll compile it myself, just a waste of time ^_^.

The above quote is not from me or from XAMPP or even AF it is from this page and the emphasis is on strong cryptography:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/platfo ... iling.html

Skype is not open source so how do you know what cryptography is used or indeed what other devious code is implemented when you use Skype. After all the original author of Skype was a person of doubtful character.

XAMPP is already set up with SSL.
https://localhost

If you need to question the Apache software authors then you should direct them to Apache.org not these XAMPP forums.
