Hello,

I am trying to redirect “http” to “https”. I successfully followed the steps to create SSL Certificate as per this website:

http://robsnotebook.com/xampp-ssl-encrypt-passwords

However, it seems that it didn’t work. I am still getting the following error messages:
For IE browser:

There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority.
The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address.

For Firefox browser:
This web site does not supply ownership information .

Do I need to buy SSL Certificates?
Thanks.

Oh yes, you need to have a valid SSL cerificate which means money!
To get an Idea, if you have FF6, checking at url box while visiting SSL sites will give you name of company that provided cerificate
So yes, you need to "donate" some $$$

Thank you very much for your quick reply.

Ensure that you really need it in the first place. https does not make the data stored on your server any safer - just the transfer part. Also, if you have any 'full' urls for images, css files etc (with http), you may get annoying popups that say elements of the page aren't secure - so change them to https as well.

Thank you very much for your valuable suggestions.
