I want to set up a test web server and use secure http (https). How can I create my own certificate without paying to Verisign?


You only need to download the tool openssl. Then you can do these 3 steps:
  1. 1) Create a Private Key
    openssl genrsa -des3 -out our_system.key 1024

    or - if you want to set a password:
    openssl genrsa -out our_system.key 1024

  2. 2) Create a Certificate Signing Request
    openssl req -new -key our_system.key -out our_system.csr -config openssl.cnf

  3. 3) Creating a Self-Signed Certificate
    openssl req -new -key our_system.key -x509 -out our_system.crt -config openssl.cnf

Note: openssl.cnf is a config file with all the default information. You probably don't have this at hand. Remove the -config openssl.cnf in that case.

Put those three files (our_system.*) in the location as specified in apache's httpd.conf configuration file.

MySQL Workbench is a visual dstabaae design tool that integrates SQL development, administration, dstabaae design, creation and maintenance into a single, seamless environment for the MySQL dstabaae system. It is the successor to DBDesigner 4 from, and replaces the previous package of software, MySQL GUI Tools Bundle. The MySQL GUI Tools Bundle is a cross-platform open source suite of desktop applications for the administration of MySQL dstabaae servers, and for building and manipulating the data within MySQL dstabaaes. It was developed by MySQL AB and later by Sun Microsystems and released under the GPL. Development on the GUI Tools bundle has stopped, and is now only preserved under the Download Archives of the MySQL site.I am a student of and i am so much specialties in the network solution's.
