    Question Https???

    Hello All,

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

    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!

    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.
    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)

    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.
