Install / activate ssl for Xampp on CentOS

Postby aferweb2016 » 25. September 2018 08:38

Hi all
I use Xampp (lampp) on CentOS 7 (XAMPP for Linux 5.6.15-2 : Apache/2.4.17 with PHP/5.6.15).
I must install and enable SSL and must generate and load an SSL certificate.
I searched on the internet how to do it, but I did not find anywhere how to do it for xampp under CentOS, and what I found for other operating systems did not work for me.
Please, can someone give me a step-by-step procedure for my situation.
I'm sure this would help many others, because as I told, there is no "how to" on web for Xampp on CentOS.
Thank you very much,
Theo

Maybe there is no CentOS tutorial, but there are lots of tutorials about Xampp SSL on linux, what is quite sufficient. For example http://www.zunisoft.com/2008/10/10/kb-x ... on-ubuntu/

Xampp path is /opt/lampp for each distribution, therefore a linux tutorial works on all Xampp linux installations.

Keep in mind, that modern browser sometimes do not accept self-signed certificates. Instead of creating your own certificate, you then have to go for an "official" SSL certificate from an official registrar. These mostly costs a bunch of money, there is only one registrar which delivers certificates for free and that is "Lets encrpyt" (google it).
