Starting in May, forum only via HTTPS - report problems now!

Post by *ghisler(Author) » 2018-04-26, 10:10 UTC

Due to the EU data protection regulation DSGVO, which requires the secure transmission of all personal data, our forum will be accessible only via HTTPS, starting in May 2018 (latest on 24.5.).

Please write here in this thread if you have problems reaching the forum via HTTPS.

There si a problem when navigating the Forum, when I middle-click one of the little orange icons to the left of the topic title for "viewing new posts since last visit" - then the new tab is opened as http even though the original tab was in https. This does not happen if I for example middle-click the title of the topic, only when clicking the icon.

Well, not really a problem with the forum directly, but:

1. you may change the link at your signature to https :wink:
2. the items delivered by a RSS feed are still linked to http even though the source is https

The RSS feed problem should be fixed now, thanks. The problem is that the forum is running behind an NGINX reverse proxy, which then gets the data locally via http from Apache/php. Therefore the php function only sees a http connection, and returns http links.

Just did that -. thanks :-)

Also, the email notifications send out when there is a new posting in a thread shows the links with http:// and not https:// - and that is my most frequent entry to the forum.

My old and unmaintained RSS reader stopped updating the RSS feed today at around 10:30 CEST (+- one hour), citing "Error connecting with SSL.". Unfortunately I am unable to get more details. I am using the following URL:
https://www.ghisler.ch/board/rss.php

Unfortunately I will have to assume that the problem is on my end and since the RSS reader is unmaintained I will have to start using another one. Any suggestions for an RSS reader that can group posts belonging to the same thread?

Mal angenommen, du drückst Strg+F, wählst die FTP-Verbindung (mit gespeichertem Passwort), klickst aber nicht auf Verbinden, sondern fällst tot um.

It looks like your rss reader isn't capable of https, or cannot handle our certificate. have therefore excluded /board/rss.php from the redirect rule, so you should be able to connect to the http url instead:
http://www.ghisler.ch/board/rss.php

Christian,
Cool, it works both via https (testing other RSS readers) and http (using my old RSS reader) now, thanks!

The links:
http://ghisler.ch/board/
http://www.ghisler.ch/board/
are is still not redirected to https, while they have a "Log in" part with "Username" and the "Password" fields at the bottom of the page.

If protecting the login/password forms is the only reason of moving the forum to https, maybe it's possible to offer the forum over http without "Username" and the "Password" fields (they may be replaced by the https [www.]ghisler.ch/board/login.php link)?

Thanks, the smtp server didn't start automatically after rebooting the server.
