I cannot tell any URLs for security reasons, but just include SSLeay into
apache 1.2.5, configure no default server, just create one virtual server
for https and another one (second IP) without https. If you ask for the second
domain using https you should get access to the install path. If you have
problems repeating this problems, I can set up a server and give you access
through my firewall.
Just update the install procedure to include an index.html file with some
text saying "Go away" into the installation path
