To enable SSL on specified directories in XAMPP, you can follow these steps:

  1. Configure Apache to enable SSL. This involves creating a self-signed SSL certificate and enabling the SSL module in the Apache configuration file. You can find the configuration file (httpd.conf) in the "conf" folder in your XAMPP installation directory.
  2. Create a virtual host for the directories you want to secure with SSL. This involves creating a new entry in the Apache configuration file for the specific directories you want to secure. You can specify the SSL settings in this virtual host configuration.
  3. Update the DocumentRoot and Directory directives in the virtual host configuration to point to the directories you want to secure with SSL.
  4. Restart Apache to apply the changes and enable SSL on the specified directories.


Keep in mind that enabling SSL on specified directories in XAMPP may require some technical knowledge and understanding of Apache configuration. It is recommended to backup your configuration files before making any changes.
