Forcing http into https

 2:51 pm on Dec 20, 2004 (gmt 0)

I have developed a cms backend where it uses https, but images / text that are relevant are in http so i keep getting "You are about to view unsecure items" is there a way of forcing the http items into https or a way of stopping this popup?

move the images into the same directory.

The links for the images are outside of the https and are causing that.

also use relative paths.

The images are relevant to the site which isnt https :(

How would i go about making the paths relevant?


 4:41 pm on Dec 20, 2004 (gmt 0)

sorry i meant relative :)

maybe make two sets of images then? You need to make the https a self-contained unit.

We are talkin about 1000s of packshots, which due to capacity couldnt be doubled. Is there an easy approach to relative paths?

Sorry - clarification. Two seperate sites, or two seperate *servers*?

Is it all physically on one machine?

For images siting on the same server and sharing same certificate you can enforce to SSL but if you have two different directories/servers you need to get certificate

to enforce SSL
Private Sub EnforceSSL()
'localhost '
If LCase(Trim(Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME"))) <> "localhost" Then
If Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_PORT") = 80 Then
'check if requested page requires SLL
Dim strSecureURL As String
strSecureURL = "https://"
strSecureURL = strSecureURL & Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME")
strSecureURL = strSecureURL & Request.ServerVariables("URL")
strSecureURL = strSecureURL & "?" & Request.ServerVariables("QUERY_STRING")
End If

End If

End Sub
Private Sub NonSSL()
If Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_PORT") <> 80 Then
Dim strNonSSLURL As String
strNonSSLURL = "http://"
strNonSSLURL = strNonSSLURL & Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME")
strNonSSLURL = strNonSSLURL & Request.ServerVariables("URL")
strNonSSLURL = strNonSSLURL & "?" & Request.ServerVariables("QUERY_STRING")
End If
End Sub

Yes the images / site are on one physical machine!

I have will have a look at trying your code cheers :)
