I am my own webmaster having taught myself how to do it and am comfortable with most aspects. One thing I am struggling with however is how to include SSL on my site. I am aware of the www.openssl.org that provide this feature for free (or at least that is how I understand it), but I cannot get any information on how I actually include this, or any SSL in my website. I have yet to understand CGI and Java but am happy to buy the dummy books to do this and in the meantime I have enough knowledge to bastardise existing scripts for my own use. All I want to do is receive an on-line booking form from clients that includes their credit card details and to ensure that the data is safely encrypted. I don't need complex access to their bank to deduct payment. Can anybody help?

Hi

Do you have your own server or are you using a host? As far as I can tell, you will need to install Openssl onto the server for it to work before you do anything else.

cheers
