I've been trying to set up my site using SSL, but I haven't been able to get this working properly.
Here's what I tried:
- I've set "Enable SSL" in the site settings to true
- I've got a working SSL certificate, which I verified by manually accessing https://domain.com/page.
With these settings, the visitor can choose whether to use http or https by editing the address in the browser.
To make sure my important pages are not accessible over http, I set the page setting "secure" to true. By changing this, I ran into an unexpected problem: the page is not accessible anymore because of a redirect loop.
I cleared the cache and recycled the application pool, without success. The redirect loop is still there.
Of course I could change the "secure" setting back through Admin > Pages, but that won't solve my actual problem.
I did not check the setting "Force SSL" in the site settings. If I understood correctly, that setting should not have any effect on the current configuration. That would only make sure the visitors return back to http when viewing a page with the "secure" setting set to false (whereas with "Force SSL" set to false as it is now, they would stay on https).
Can anyone point me in the direction of what I might be doing wrong?
Thanks in advance!
