slightly ot - PHP Development

this is related to php in the sense that I use it in my development I need to use the https protocol to transfer a ssn over a web form..I just have never done anything with ssl or the likes before. Do I just need to use the openssl functions in php..(if so..how does that secure the client) or..how do I use a certificate. My host provides me with a shard cert, but I just don't know what to do with it. Can anyone shed some light thnx -- Chris Mosser...

    If you have a secure server, then all communication between your browser
    and the server will be secure, so you can use it (pretty much) identical
    to a non-secure server (of course, with the added overheads of the
    encryption).

    Put your page containing the form on the secure server along with the
    PHP page that manipulates it (or have the form submit to itself). All
    your data will be nice and secure then :)

    As for using a certificate, you'll have to consult your provider.
    They're not all the same.

    All you have to do is code the URL has https instead of http. The
    web server will take care of the encryption.
