Oh 1 more thing

I am now using XAMPP latest version, It's running perfectly. My OS is windows ME (I don't know if SSL is affected by OS platform).

try https://localhost

as far as php: php is php, ssl is just a secure wrapper.

By just write https://localhost I can use SSL capabilities from XAMPP?


I have read SSL on PHP manual, It's contain many function that I don't know how to use it :(

Hm....just take a shot

to use ssl capabilities on a login form (like hotmail) all I need to do is fill tag form like this :
<form method=post action=https://verified_login.php>

is that right?

Can someone tell me more about this? Like how to buy a new ssl certificate and apply it on xampp?

try they have all kinds of stuff. also it doesnt have to be secure, thats what ssl does it secures otherwise unsecure scripting.
