Unhappy https SSL problem

I am trying to add SSL to web2 on my production server.
I successfully did this on my test server but it will not work on my production server. Both servers have ISPConfig running fine on port 81 as https.

When I try to access https://www.mysite.com I get "Internet Explorer cannot display this webpage".

Here's what I have done so far:

1) Checked the SSL box on the Basis tab in ISPConfig for web2 and clicked Save.

2) Entered the details on the SSL tab and created the cert. I can see the 4 cert files in /var/www/web2/ssl. Everything looks fine.

3) Tried to access https://www/mysite.com
I get "Internet Explorer cannot display this webpage".

4) Recreated the server cert by doing the following 5 steps:
Code:
 
openssl genrsa -des3 -passout pass:yourpassword -out /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key2 1024
openssl req -new -passin pass:yourpassword -passout pass:yourpassword -key /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key2 -out /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/ssl.csr/server.csr -days 365
openssl req -x509 -passin pass:yourpassword -passout pass:yourpassword -key /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key2 -in /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/ssl.csr/server.csr -out /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt -days 365
openssl rsa -passin pass:yourpassword -in /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key2 -out /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key
chmod 400 /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key
5) Restarted ISPConfig
service ispconfig_server restart

6) Tried again to access https://www/mysite.com
I still get "Internet Explorer cannot display this webpage".

7) Rebooted the server.
I still get "Internet Explorer cannot display this webpage".

8) Checked to make sure port 443 is open in the firewall. It is.

Talking Fixed!

Well, it seems that mod_ssl was never installed on my production server. I guess I assumed it was part of the default load my webhost did when they setup the dedicated server. It's bad to assume!

I did a simple yum install mod_ssl and everything works great now.
