Subject RE: baseURL when mixing SSL and non-SSL
Date Mon, 23 Mar 2009 12:20:41 GMT
The error ssl_error_rx_record_too_long is thrown by Firefox when you hit
a non SSL enabled site via HTTPS://....  Follow up your host and see
what needs to be done.  I'd expect you'll have to provide them an SSL
certificate, which they would place on your server as appropriate.

Subject: Re: baseURL when mixing SSL and non-SSL

Our of curiosity I just tried to invoke my JSPWiki Login.jsp page with
https vs http - it failed and here's what I got:

        SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible
        (Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)
        The page you are trying to view can not be shown because the
        authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
            * Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this

I'm using port 80 and I started with http at the main prompt (prior to
invoking Login.jsp).

Do I have to arrange with my hosting service to activate SSL?  Or is
there something else needed?
