SSL question

Postby Kenny Rogers » Sun Sep 18, 2005 7:04 pm

I just created a website with an order form that asks the user to input their credit card number. Unfortunately, the credit card company says I need an SSL certificate. I'm proficient with HTML and Javascript, but this SSL stuff is all new to me.

I understand the basic concept of encryption, but how do I go about applying it to the form on my site? My server does not support CGI or SSI, and I am currently using "formmail.com" to handle my CGI script.

Can anyone explain basically what I need to do? Here is my site.

OpenSSL is what you need:
