XF 1.5 Unable to get HTTPS working properly

#1


As you can see on the picture right there, it is completely messed up. I read at the CloudFlare support that I had to go through the code and make sure the images and JavaScripts is loaded specifically over HTTPS. But I doubt I really have to do that, how can I fix this problem?

Step 1, make sure that you have changed your URL in the ACP to reflect the HTTPS.
Step 2, enable the Proxy in the ACP.
Step 3, turn off Rocket expLoader if it is turned on.

You also need to force your http inbound's to HTTPS protocol, as currently it looks like you are forcing some rewrites to http://www format.

I am only planning on using Flexible SSL, so I don't have to do all that certificate things.
Then your issue is apparently with CloudFlare and it being configured incorrectly. Your best bet for assistance with that will be with their support forum/line.

What possible could be incorrectly configured?
There were a few headaches (don't remember exactly what they were now it's been a while ago) when I helped a guy do what you are wanting. It took some time researching at cloudflare's support site to get it resolved.

Are you using full or flexible? Full with require a certificate. If your going free make sure to set it to flexible. Then enable image proxy, then set your board url to https: You may also need to set your .httacess file to redirect to https and you may need to add the code to your config.php that I posted above depending on your server.

Goto ACP> Options> Messages> then turn on proxy images. Then try it again over https: with flexible enabled. Also see this if you want to force it all over https.

Forcing SSL didn't help. I can still see HTTP links on the tabs. It is not working even a littile bit, it is completely messed up. But, why dosn't the links change to HTTPS when I have changed the basic board information? It dosen't make any sense.

Did you turn on image proxy?
