Issues trying to configure SSL on AWS Elastic Beanstalk Webserver (single instance) PHP


I am in the process of migrating a website for a client to AWS. I have everything configured and working except that the client would like to be able to accept payments on there website. I followed several guides on how to get SSL working using elastic beanstalk.

If i build the same zip file but leave out the config files it builds correctly. This is pretty much exactly what AWS has on there support page and in the documentation for Elastic Beanstalk so I am not sure what is happening.
