Please can you check if monit was compiled with SSL? For example:

$ monit -V
This is Monit version 5.26.0
Built with ssl, with ipv6, with compression, with pam and with large files

I have monit installed on Ubuntu 18.04 (some nodes are reporting to M/Monit), but a few test nodes are not yet and I'm trying to figure out how to monitor https services.

Firstly I'm trying to set the ssl option in /etc/monit/monitrc with:

 set ssl options {
     verify: disabled

However, when I start monit with 
~# service monit restart

I get this result:

 * Restarting daemon monitor monit    
/etc/monit/monitrc:133: Error: syntax error 'ssl'

If I comment out the ssl configuration, I get an error at the first https reference.

The content:

check host FishEagle-Production with address
    if failed host port 443 protocol https
    and request "/login"
    with timeout 25 seconds
    for 4 times within 5 cycles
    then alert
#port 443 protocol https
#    if failed port 443 protocol https with ssl options {verify: disable} then alert

The resulting error message:

~# service monit restart
 * Restarting daemon monitor monit
  /etc/monit/monitrc:338: Error: syntax error 'https'

So what could the problem be?  How can I check the https services?
