There are just a few little things you need to be aware of regarding how 
Apache2 is set up under Blastwave.  The general Apache config is in 
/opt/csw/apache2/etc/httpd.conf, but the setup for optional components 
(such as SSL) are in separate files under /opt/csw/apache2/etc/extra. 
In order to use one of the optional components, you'll need to uncomment 
the appropriate Include directive at the end of the httpd.conf file, 
then edit the correct file (e.g. httpd-ssl.conf) under the "extra" 
directory.  To start Apache with SSL enabled, run 
"/etc/init.d/cswapache2 startssl".
