Re: [PLUG] https Certificates Question

I have used startssl ( with some success. You can get a cert for free from them.

I haven't tried CAcert but have thus far had no issues with startssl, although I'd be happy to hear from anyone who has.

I need to set up one of my apache web servers as a secure server with

I'm wondering about the costs and potential pitfalls in doing so.

A quick web search has found that commercial certificates from the "big

Can anyone point me to a good primer/reference for this, or let me know
how you fared establishing a secure web server?
