I am trying to get my existing PHPMyFAQ to run over SSL and when I turn it on in Apache the page looks not quiet right. Is there a how-to for doing it the proper way? I was not able to find anything in the documentation..any help is greatly appreciated

Hi,

if SSL is running in Apache, just activate SSL in the admin configuration and change the URL of the FAQ in the admin configuration. That's all.

Well thank you but is there a way to active or enable it without getting into this interface? I am asking because the latest browser update dont allow any longer to accept cookies any longer and without it I am unable to login.

Is the process the same for IIS? We have SSL running and have enabled it in the phpMyFAQ config and changed the URL in config as well. Problem is, if users do not type https://my.site.com they end up on the HTTP version of the page. Subsequent clicks take them to HTTPS but we need the landing page to be HTTPS as well. We have tried URL rewrites in IIS and nothing seems to work.

Is there a way to enable SSL in PHPMyFAQ without being able to login to the phpmyfaq interface? I cannot login any longer but I have phpmyadmin and access to the database.

Hi,

you can check the values in the table "faqconfig" for the SSL support and the URL. These are the important keys:

- main.referenceURL -> your URL with https
- security.useSslForLogins -> true
- security.useSslOnly -> true
