[FIXED] VM and HTTPS://
« on: September 16, 2007, 22:58:23 pm »
Hi,
I have a new clean installation of Joomla 1.5 (nightly build 09/15/07) and VM nightly build rev. 947. When i select all or for ex. account in the Configuration menu and the tab security field  Shop areas which must use https nothing is happen. The site is still viewed in http://. On the checkout module it switch to the https://. Is this a bug, I hope for a solution on this:-)

I use:
IIS 6.0
Explorer 7.0/6.0
PHP 4.4.7
MySql 5.0

Hi,
this problem has to do with the session handling in Joomla! 1.0, which is not very logical.
If you switch from http to https, your session is destroyed and you must login again.

So in Joomla! 1.0 this functionality only applies to the Frontend VirtueMart Core Modules (account,checkout,shop).

Not a VirtueMart bug.

ciao, Sören

Verified for Joomla! 1.5.

To verify:

1. Publish the VirtueMart module on the front page.
2. Set 'account' as needing to use https (in VM configuration).
3. View the font page of the site.

In J! 1.0.x, the link to Account Maintenance uses https. In J! 1.5, it uses http. This is a compatibility problem with sefRelToAbs().
