Serving Secure Content

Secure HTTP is denoted by an https:// header in the URI. This protocol is an HTTP variant that uses encryption to keep data transfers private. Apache supports secure HTTP transfers, but configuring it to do so is a three-step process:

1. You must install a special version of Apache or add-on package that enables encryption.

2. You must obtain or create a certificate, which is an encryption key.

3. You must configure Apache to listen on the secure HTTP port and respond to requests on that port using encryption.
