Starting and setting https server on OSX 10.9.5 ready to reply to "Insert from URL" distant queries

Hello from France. Sorry, my english is not perfect ;-)

FMPA 13 - MacOS X 10.9.5

I use "Insert from URL" with ftp url scheme to read simple text files ( .txt - UTF8) based on a distant Mac (with fixed IP)

The "server" part is actually a simple Pure FTP installed on an old Mac. Works perfectly, but not secure.

I'd like using a URL scheme based on https to do the same things on a Mac (10.9.5), aka, only read distant text files, but i have no idea how to do this. I don't care about testing https certificate because FMPA 13 "insert from url" can't test certificate validity.

My google searches links to activation and configuration of Apache web server, mais this seems very complicated!

I've read some people link an https sever to a local ftp server, but it seems even more complex to do.

So maybe i can do this using a dedicated software ( using other server than Apache ?)

I found virtualhostx, i suppose it can do a part of the job, mais what part ?

Maybe there's a solution via FMPro server to replace the "Insert from URL" approach ?

Many thanks to all replies

Best regards, ekami.
