10.5: Enable https on 10.5's Apache2 web server

You can create "self-signed" certificates. I think Apache might ship with the utility to do this.

The resulting https: encryption is just as strong as if you bought a commercial certificate but for the fact that no one will recognize you as a SSL certificate provider which will cause most modern browsers to throw a certificate warning message which might cause a person to not browse your site.
