Problem with SSL and Admin


Recommended Posts

I have installed my SSL and everything is working fine (inside the store)


However whenever i go to:




I get asked to login (which is normal) then i get the 'Blue screen thing' if i click on ANYTHING - it asks me for my username and password again


then i get connected to http not https


Any ideas how to fix this?

ok now i know what you are talking about. if you want ssl for your admin area, you need to change the top line in your admin/includes/configure.php from http to https

excellent - thank you it worked! amazing how much an S makes a difference isnt it.


The admin is working under https now - however if i type in http://etc etc/admin - i can still get onto it - is that normal or should it 'redirect' me to a secure admin?
