    Hi itgeek,

    You would do this with your webserver be it apache, iis, lighttpd etc.

    Tell us a bit more about your platform, OS, webserver etc and who you are planning to purchase from and we might be able to help more.

    It's a fairly painless process as long as you pick a decent provider for your cert.

    Hi there thanks for the reply:

    We are running Ubuntu 10.04 with PHP Version 5.3.

    Could you recommend a ssl provider?

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    I'll go with you using Apache in that case, you should be fine with anyone really.

    Just checked one of our Moodle customers and they are using Equifax on top of Ubuntu 10.04 but I've installed them from various places.

    The key's to make sure you get one with a money back guarantee just incase it does go wrong.

    If you've got a working self signed set up half the battle is won.

    We've used Go Daddy here (but we have a wildcard), also school's can get a free SSL certificate from a Spanish company (IPSCA), these certifcates take a few days to arrive though and aren't trusted by all browsers as they missed the deadline to get themselves into the browser bundles when they renamed themselves.

    As its already been stated the process itself is pretty painless, you can put your own self signed SSL in now while you order an SSL.

    The process of getting an SSl, is pretty much as follows:
    1) Choose where you want to buy/ get an SSL certifcate from
    2) Create an certificate server resquest and the key file using a guide such as CSR generation Instructions
    3) Send off the request to where your buying the certifcate from, a day or so later you should get an SSL sent back that you can then use on your apache server.

    If you need extra help im sure if you ask here someone will be able to help.
