How to get HTTPS with xampp and PHP

Hello,

I am currently using XAMPP and building PHP pages. I am trying to open my pages with https instead of http.
Example: https://mypage.com vs http://mypage.com

However, when I do so I have a warning from Firefox or IE, saying that the website doesn't have a certificate. It asks me "Are you sure you want to continue, etc."

In the "More details" section of the Firefox warning I have the following (sorry translate from french):
The certificate is not valid because it is auto-signed
The certificate is only valid for localhost
The certificate expired on 2006-12-04 10:11

The website is Intranet only.

I am not sure what I should do to solve this situation and I would greatly appreciate any help.
Thank you

If you're just running on localhost in a test environment, accept the warnings and embrace the bogus certificate!

If you're running in a paid hosting environment, contact your hosting provider.  You will need your own IP address and you will need to buy a certificate from a reputable authority.

Wait,

So there is no way to fix this display? If I stay with my current environment?

You could buy a ssl certificate for your server but these are expensive and above all useless if you are only running an intranet application.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I have used LiquidWeb hosting for sites that needed both http and https.  They have great support, are reasonably priced and best of all, the SSL certificates worked seamlessly.  But be prepared to pay for it; SSL certs are not cheap.  That's because they are valuable in that they protect your data and your client's data, and they build trust.
