    A few questions regarding cURL systems

    1. If you are submitting to a payment gateway that uses SSL, is it just a case of defining https://www.... in the cURL initiation?

    2. If I wanted to use SSL on my own site to secure information sent to and from the payment gateway, how would I go about this? It is something I have not done before, I think I need to attain a certificate and set it up with apache first. Could someone give me a break down on the processes involved here?

    3. Could I use this certificate to secure the login procedure on my site as well like Gmail, Ebay etc? If you go the gmail screen and type http instead of https it defaults back to https, how is this acheived and what steps must be taken to secure login authentication using SSL.

    I have done a fair bit of searching on the topic and have found some excellent cURL tutorials, however none of them seem to delve into SSL and this is something I desperately want to tackle.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks kindly, I've managed to get myself a free SSL certificate, I'm now going to try and modify my login authentication to use SSL. Anything I should take into consideration other than mod_rewriting the URL, like posting of form fields etc?
