Subject Re: [users@httpd] Question concerning https/http and another concerning subdomains
Date Fri, 20 Dec 2002 07:32:56 GMT
Hi,

you can't use http instead of https, because http is the protocol in which browser and server
communicate. What you want to do, is to let the web browser connect with the http "language"
to a server understanding only https and that doesn't work.
To connect to a https server you have to tell the browsers to use specifically the https protocol.
