### Not-so-minor SSL Update

Earlier in the month I posted about minor updates coming to the site. A recent one was pretty major. I've transitioned the site to SSL and hopefully I didn't screw things up too badly. That means the site and forums should be accessed using https:// protocol. This secures your connection from being snooped by baddies and makes Chrome (and future browsers) less likely to alarm visitors with dire warnings of mischief.

The transition required a lot of gentle massaging to get everything working correctly. If something seems amiss, please let me know here or via Twitter.

I notice the site is still running HTTP. If you're using Apache you can use an auto-forwarding redirect over to HTTPS.

Something like this:

ExpandRewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^/?(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}/\$1 [R,L]

### Re: Not-so-minor SSL Update

Trying to get the site to redirect to HTTPS has been nightmare. No matter what I tried I'd get a redirection loop, even if I eliminated every other rule in case there was some conflict. Same thing with this suggestion.

However, it prodded me to explore this more deeply and it looks like I neglected a server setting which is what was apparently causing the conflict. I was "doing it wrong" trying to get this going with .htaccess. I think it should be working properly now.

Thanks.

How did you manage to do it in the end, Xot?

It was just a server control panel setting I didn't notice.
