Question:I want to set up a test web server and use secure http (https). How can I create my own certificate without paying to Verisign?
Answer:You only need to download the tool openssl. Then you can do these 3 steps:
Note: openssl.cnf is a config file with all the default information. You probably don't have this at hand. Remove the -config openssl.cnf in that case.
Put those three files (our_system.*) in the location as specified in apache's httpd.conf configuration file.
