OpenSSL + Apache certificate, how?

How do I obtain a SSL certificate for my Apache server? Do I have to buy one? Can I make my own? How does this all work, if you haven't noticed I am a to this SSL stuff.

if you have the open ssl libraries installed, you can make your own certs (server, client, ca, etc).

if you're using apache2, it provides mod_ssl built in that you just have to enable as a ./configure switch.

anyway, start reading from here and go down.
