Thanks.
apache+mod_ssl is my preference, but that's really just me. Either will serve you well. Functionality and configuration file sysntax is slightly different between the two but that's mostly a matter of individual preference rather than any organic difference. One thing that mod_ssl supplies is the EAPI, which enables a number of other extensions to apache, such as the ability to define and use variables within the apache configuration files. You might be interested to know that mod_ssl is a standard part of Apache 2.x Cheers, Matthew -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 26 The Paddocks Savill Way PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Marlow Tel: +44 1628 476614 Bucks., SL7 1TH UK
