Building an SSL page

Wed Sep 08, 2004 9:57 am

Anyone does this before?

I need to build an SSL secure page that allows a user to send credit card details securely. Any info would be great. :)

What platform?

For Apache, there's some info on setting up secure pages here:

You will also need to purchase a SSL certificate from a recognized Certificate Authority, unless you don't mind your users getting a pop-up warning about untrusted (self-signed) certificates when they try to access the secure area of your site.

Beyond that I'm not sure, as I have not done this either.

The page itself doesn't need to be special. The most significant things you'll have to do to make this work are set up apache to use mod_ssl and purchase a certificate from a trusted CA.

I think the web server uses Windows of some sort, it has support for Frontpage extensions.

I just need to make an online form of sorts (cgi), secure it with SSL (not sure whether he's gonna get a signed cert or just make one himself) to transfer credit card details to him. I don't think I have to do much in setting up the actual configuration of an SSL site.

Heh.. hopefully this will be simple enough. ;)
