On my local pc i test my sites with SSL.
I just add a new site each time and create the binding: local.domainname.com Port:80
I then edit the hosts file and add in 127.0.0.1    local.domainname.com

I now want to test SSL on that domain, so I have created a Self Signed Certificate, but when I got o add the binding for it, and select https I can't enter a hostname and can only select the certificate.
How can I test the SSL?

I have tried that but no success.
When I add the binding, the site appears to stop in IIS7

It seems that you have added the binding which conflicts with the other one.

Please check that the IP 127.0.0.1 is not binded with port 80 or 443 to any other website configured on same IIS.

When I tried to start it, it gave me an error message about something being used by another process.
I've later discovered that it was skype and when I quit Skype it worked ok
