    Enable mod_ssl (I'm pretty sure WAMP already has it, you just need to uncomment it in your httpd.conf if it's commented out) and buy an SSL certificate. Wherever you buy it from should have instructions on the directives to add to use it.

    You can self-sign a certificate, but then anyone that visits your site will get a big security warning popup from their browser telling them the site is not safe.

    thanks,

    but what is Free Trusted SSL Certificate?
    means if we have this free trusted ssl certificate, then it will not give the warning popup?

    But when I enabled the module in httpd.conf file

    LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so

    and when I restart the WAMP, the wamp service gets stopped.

    Have you looked at your error_log for the reason Apache wouldn't start?

    I have followed all the steps.
    But at step 42 and 43 i.e.
    Making the changes in conf/httpd.conf file
    1)
    # Secure (SSL/TLS) connections
    Include conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf
    #

    and
    2)
    LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so

    After making these 2 changes when I restart wamp, then it stops running.

    I don't know why this is happening.

    I have tried with wamp1.7.3 and wamp2.0 But no luck and stucked.

    Did you create an httpd-ssl.conf file at conf/extra?

    I'm not a fan of that guide you're using. It's got far too many pages for what should be a 5 line change.
