Hi, I've done alot of searching on this, but have yet to find a clear answer to my question.
I'm writing my own CMS system that I'm going to release as open source. However, the only bit that I don't really have any experience with at all, is SSL.
This is presuming that the server has the certificates, etc all ready working correctly. Just within the php script, is implementing support for SSL pages in my script, as simple as having the page that needs to be SSL secured running over https:// rather than [?...] Or is there a big chunk of SSL that I am missing? Thanks
If you are merely concerned about delivering page content via secure sockets then you are on the right track. From the Apache SSL [httpd.apache.org] docs
Which port does HTTPS use?
You can run HTTPS on any port, but the standards specify port 443, which is where any HTTPS compliant browser will look by default. You can force your browser to look on a different port by specifying it in the URL like this (for port 777): https://secure.example.com:777/
