I'm new to web programming and I was looking for help understanding how https sites and their logins work in terms of the client/server communication. Does anyone know a good resource (or have a good explanation themselves)? Not sure if this is the right forum for it, so sorry if this doesn't belong.thanks so much, Rob

Is there somewhere I can look to find out more about what exactly goes (or can go on) on at each step of the way?
Depends on the web server you are using. If you are using Linux/Apache2run apache2-ssl-certificate (as root)this will ask you questions (such as cities, countries,...blah)create a new link to the webpages under httpsmake sure your apache listens to port 443 (I think) in ports.confin your website conf file, change to NameVirtualHost *:443add SSLEngine on SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.pemin <virtual host *:443> under DocumentRootIf you are not runing apache, then you'll have to google it.Have fun.

are you interested in understanding its complete definition (as far as what is is and what/how it is used) or are you looking for purchasing/set up instructions? (or both)
