How do I do it on live server?

Assuming you are referring to SSL with HTTP, for testing purposes you need to create a self-signed SSL certificate.

However, you probably don't want your users to get a warning for self-signed cert, so for production environment you might want to get a real, official CA signed certificate.

Agreed with @Jawa, but for testing SSL on localhost, I would suggest you to look this post

SSL or SSH? I know some people have already given answers on this thread but you could be meaning SSH which is a login system which allows you to login to the server and perform CLI commands and allows you to execute commands and perform server maintenance from a remote location.

PuTTY is a good application of which you can use to connect remotely to a server.
