View Full Version : Https???

Hello All,

Now this is really a stupid question, but I need to know lol:p

Now, If I want to use the SECURE SERVER on my webhost (https) to secure a username password form, I just put the script on the secure server?

Or do I have to do some special coding to work with the secure server???

Any insight is greatly appreciated! :D

For everything that's to work on the secure server should go on that server, otherwise you're creating a security risk by making uneccessary holes

So if I am going to have part of the site on a secure server, I should just put the whole thing on it?

What about when sites have there site on a normaly http, and then when it comes to info they switch over to https?

I really appreciate your reply Nightfire, any more advince you can give is really appreciated! :)

how is the secure server implemented on your host ? some hosts you get a secure directory in which case all files need to be in that directory (images & all) to stop the security alerts in your browser.

with some hosts the secure address is symlinked to your existing web-root so all you need do is change http:// to https:// , really your host should have some info on this somewhere.

My webhost says to just put a s at the end: http (normal) https(secure)

there is no folder. In that case what is the idea?

should just work if you put your files in your web root. Try visiting http://www.yourhomepage.com and https://www.yourhomepage.com, if they both come up then it works.
