I am building a website using PHP and its going to live on an Apache server. There are certain parts of the site that are just content, they don't need to be secure but there are a few pages like the login and settings pages that I'd like to be secure. I've heard about SSL and I was wondering. How does it work? Do I need to add special code to my PHP code or is it something that I just do on the server.
For example, say my source file is login.php, how do I just tell Apache to use SSL on that? Sorry if this is a pretty basic and newbie question but I am lost when it comes to this sort of stuff.
