Using Coppermine on HTTPS connection
« on: August 17, 2011, 11:07:52 pm »

Hi! I'm using Coppermine (the latest 1.5.x version) on an IIS 6 server which we have to use only in HTTPS mode (a regular http server is not an option this time) :)

Anyway, while it seems to work great on HTTPS connection (we have a proper certificate on the server and so on), it seems that some of the content in Coppermine tries to load from HTTP server, I guess from*.* and as a result, web browsers (in our case mostly IE9) gives the mixed content warning messages:

"Only secure content is displayed" "Show all content" (in IE9... IE8 and previous versions give other warnings about the same reason: showing http content over https connection.)

Is there a way to get rid of the warning messages, maybe remove the content (edit the code a bit) it uses from http source? Or maybe replace some lines from the code to use https connections instead of http connections? Do you think that here is a way to solve this minor issue we have? Thanks!  ;)

Afaik only the news (which are displayed only to the admin) will be embedded from our domain. If you hide the news, all content should be loaded from your domain.
