OpenSSL is included in XAMPP - look in the C:\xampp\apache\bin folder.

Also look in the readme_en.txt file for what's included.

readme_en.txt is not in "C:\xampp\apache\bin"

i looked in path C:\xampp\apache\bin, but readme_en.txt file is not in.
the problem is "The certificate is not trusted because it is self signed."
although i was created server.key and server.crt, on that beside i changed the path to "server.key and server.crt" in httpd-ssl.conf

# Server Private Key:
….
SSLCertificateKeyFile "C:/xampp/apache/conf/server.key"

# Server Certificate:

SSLCertificateFile "C:/xampp/apache/conf/server.crt"

That's because the readme_en.txt file is in the C:\xampp folder.

I asked you to look in the apache\bin folder for the OpenSSL files not the readme file.

That's usually the case with a self signed a certificate.

Here is a couple of choices:
1. Buy a trusted certificate from GoDaddy, Verisign etc.
(look on the net there are many offerings and many different prices to choose from).

2. Get a free trusted certificate from the likes of https://www.cacert.org/index.php

3. Read this How to Create the SSL X.509 Certificates
