Images disappeared, SSL problem?


Recommended Posts



got a funny one.


Website has suddenly stopped showing images.


There's no SSL Certificate, never has been, and the site's been looking fine for 18 months.


Suddenly it has stopped displaying images. When you try to view an image it is referencing them under https (The base href is pointing to "https://www.www.website.com/"- where they've never been.


The error when right clicking and viewing an image is :


An error occurred during a connection to www.website.com.


SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.


(Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)



Here is the relevant bit of the config file.


define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.website.com'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.website.com'); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

define('ENABLE_SSL', false); // secure webserver for checkout procedure?


SSL is set to false


I can frig a fix by setting HTTPS_SERVER to 'http://www.website.com'


Any idea why it is insisting on using the HTTPS_SERVER?


Thanks in advance as always!

Snatch the pebble from my hand.


Many thanks to: Fixed Width Site with CSS, Remove Entire Left or Right Side Columns
