Issue with setting up SSL on website

Chad Huntley's picture

I followed the instructions here: http://www.turnkeylinux.org/blog/ssl-certificates

I doubled checked everything, it seems like it should be working. However whenever I type in a https:// URL, it immediatly redirects back to http. What setting is causing this?

Was it doing that prior to adding your SSL cert? By default TKL appliances should allow either HTTP or HTTPS (with self signed cert) OOTB. So unless you've added that prior and forgotten about it, nothing you've done should've changed it (assuming you follwed those directions).

Anyway, to resolve the issue check your virtual host settings (check in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled to see what's enabled and edit the file(s) in /etc/apache2/sites-available). If you find nothing there have a look for .htaccess files in your doc root (/var/www by default in LAMP appliance).
