Can't get SSL to work
Hi, yes i'd checked and re-checked the config.php (also deleted the cache folders). I'm using the Elastic2 skin 'as is'.
Strangest thing, I've just tried the site again with https and it seems to be working. It's enabled from my server end but not in jamroom config. I'm loathe to 'fix it when it aint broken' but will it cause any issues down the line if I don't have the redirect in the config file?
I'm not sure what you mean about a "redirect" in the config file. There's only one URL setting in the data/config/config.file - make sure it is set with https - i.e.
$_conf['jrCore_db_host'] = 'https://www.yoursite.com';
I'd do it in these steps:
- log in to your site before changing anything and go to Developer Tools and turn on Developer Mode - that will prevent caching from playing a part
- make the change in the data/config/config.php file to update your URL to the SSL version of the URL
That's pretty much it - you can add a forced redirect from non-SSL to SSL in your .htaccess file once you're sure everything is working.
Let me know if that helps.
