Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache and Port 80 and 443

No, there's quite a bit more than that if you want to use secure HTTP.
The standard is to use mod_ssl to set up SSL/TLS support. It's not too
difficult, but there's quite a bit of details. I highly suggest you
read all the way through the documentation starting with the overview
at http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/ssl/, and then for the module
itself at http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_ssl.html.

If you're setting up an online store, you're going to have to be
incredibly careful about what you're doing: people will not be pleased
if you're taking their credit card numbers but don't really know what
you're doing with the secure connection. Unless you're planning to
become an expert, I would highly recommend you hire out to someone who
is an expert to host and manage your store. You can still use
do-it-yourself SSL for your own website, but I wouldn't recommend
doing it yourself for something as important as online transactions.
