    As far as I'm aware, there isn't anything special you need to do to enable SSL in moodle. If you've already generated a CSR (ie. a request from the Apache server) and have used that to get a commercial SSL certificate, then it should be as simple as installing that certificate on the Apache server.

    There's no need for self-signing anything, as you've already got the paid for cert.

    The only special thing is the use of 'loginhttps' in the moodle config. If it is set to true, it just encrypts the login stage. If false, you would have the entire install encrypted (this would be the route I'd take).
