Subject Re: [users@httpd] redirect https to http
Date Tue, 31 May 2011 08:25:01 GMT

Frank,

thanks. I looked at the compatibility and that does not look too good as
we have loads of people using IE7 and XP, not sure ... it looks good, though.

Our company uses Firefox 3.68 so thats not the problem but I have
online questionnaires that rely on the https stuff, and lots of our
clientele use IE7 (and many use IE6) :-(
