“OpenSSL binaries” on the (shared) server

ssl_virgin
Hello again – another (possibly dumb) question I'm afraid:

With your help I have successfully created a Private Key and Public Certificate using OpenSSL.  These were created on my PC and will be uploaded to the server (and the Public Cert will also be uploaded to PayPal).  Apparently, in order to generate PayPal buttons “on the fly”, I also need to upload “OpenSSL binaries” to the server.  What I need to know is:

1) what files exactly do I need to upload? (Server is running Linux).

2) Is this normally something that my host provider needs to be involved in (I have a shared server account), or can I just upload them to my server space (and obviously reference them accordingly in my scripts)?

Thanks for any advice you can give!

Chances are, your host already has it installed.  Log into a shell and
type 'openssl' to see.

If he doesn't, you can download the source from openssl.org, put it on
your account, and compile it to generate an openssl binary, which
should go in a ~/bin directory of some kind.
