I have used this article https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-create-a-self-signed-ssl-certificate-for-apache-in-ubuntu-16-04 to get my Ubuntu 16.04 server set up for SSL.

I also found these commands helpful in disabling SSL.
sudo a2dismod ssl sudo a2dissite default-ssl sudo service apache2 restart
And follow the prompts from the command line.
I didn’t adjust the firewall settings as I wouldn’t think it would be a bad thing to leave the option for SSL traffic.
If I’m missing something, I’m open to suggestions. As of right now, it appears to have worked.
