SSL not working 'No Such Option'

Trying to start the Mongoose w/ PHP Binary using SSL and am receiving an error "failed to set option [ssl_certificate] to ... no such option".  The path to the PEM file is correct in the error message.  This is a Windows 7 64-bit machine and the HTTP port is up and running with no issues.  Only when adding a listening port for SSL (443) and adding the ssl_certificate option in the conf file do I get the error. 

Message boards indicate I have to download the source and recompile with the -NS-ENABLE-SSL flag.  Is this true?  Does your binary not support SSL by default?  I have the free edition downloaded at the moment.  If one of the other editions has SSL supported by default, let me know that as well.

After reviewing the other comments, I can see that the ssl_certificate option was removed and the listening_port option was enhanced to include ssl.  However, when I changed to the new configuration, the server loads successfully, but an error is returned in the web browser "ssl_error_rs_record_too_long".  Does this indicate there is something wron with the ssl certificate?  It is a self-signed certificate

Mongoose binary that is shipped by does not support SSL.
You need to recompile with SSL support.

Hey Paul,

Did you end up resolving this issue? I'm facing the same problem of "ssl_error_rs_record_too_long"
