Hello everyone

I've got a server running nginx/0.5.33, I'm not sure how it was
installed but I'm guessing it was done via apt-get or aptitude.

Would that version have ssl support built in?

I should upgrade it, but that might be more hassle than it's worth.

Any help, greatly appreciated.

The ssl module is not built by default. To find out if it's in your
package run

# nginx -V

If ssl support is present you'll see "--with-http_ssl_module"  in the
configure arguments.
