    Your .htaccess is broken or the /admincp/ directory is missing from your site.

      Could someone please take a look at ticket #1653216 I posted here only because it was an emergency and I needed to revert the site.

      Right now with all three set at http the problem is that with https the forum does not load at all. I mean, obviously because the settings are http, but when I try to change them to https I have problems.

        We will need as a minimum the admincp login and ftp credentials, please add these to the ticket, otherwise when someone picks it up they are just going to ask for these. We need access to the system to see what's going on.

          I did place all of those details into the ticket in the bottom secure area.

            I've set your vB5 site to https and I can log in just fine.

            Make sure you clear your browser cache and restart the browser.

            What you should now do is ask your hosts to arrange redirection of non-https to https. Otherwise you will get log in issues.

            Obviously you do need to now access the site via https://, using http won't work, hence the need for the redirect.

              I did talk to HostGator, they said that the redirection of non-https to https is via coding. I assume they mean via .htaccess ?

              The problem is that I have four sites on this VPS server, and now redirection is getting really screwy. The .htaccess seem to be conflicting. I added a post to my ticket 1653216 to explain this.

                Figured it out!

                Needed to add these to the mysite directory
                RewriteEngine On
                RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
                RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.mysite.com/$1 [R=301,L]

                and this to the mysite/forums directory
                RewriteEngine On
                RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
                RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.mysite.com/forums/$1 [R=301,L]

                And the same to each of the other three ones (other three sites)!
